My friend and former summer intern Ellen Ferguson is a pretty cool young woman. Throughout most of high school, she was the super shy one who refused to come to our youth ministry. Once she got over that nonsense, she blossomed into a wonderful student leader. She just graduated from Liberty University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (emphasis on Spanish, religion and history). She is hoping to become a missionary somewhere in Central or South America. She loves coffee and Jesus, which makes her more than okay in my book. Oh, and she's a darn good writer, too. You should read her blog.
