In the city.

Ok kids, it's time for the big update from New York! I am just now getting internet access, so sorry for the delay in communication.

I am living in this adorable apartment in Riverdale (SW Bronx) - pics coming soon - and I love it. For you Birminghamians, think Highlands area except New York style. A few blocks walk will take you to a "downtown" area where you can find a grocery store, CVS, and every type of ethnic food I could need (Mexican, Thai, Japanese, Sushi, Chinese, Italian, etc) all on one street!! Add streets of gold and I'm sure this is what heaven must be like.

I started my first week of work as well. I still don't have a desk or anything, but I've been getting acquainted with the people around me and what I'll be doing. Yeah I'm gonna be busy. Stephen, Taylor and 2 others are working on expanding the media for the missions department of Times Square Church. I am working as the "Project Manager" and will be connecting the missions logistic-heads with the media creative-heads. I am looking forward to being in a place where God has given me the skills to excel and be challenged at the same time.

I can't wait to share my stories with you! Stay tunes for more updates and lovely NY photos! (To see more of Stephen's photos, click here.)

love, jessi


  1. I enjoyed the thought of considering Japanese and Sushi two unique ethnic foods.

    Random, I know, but I have no connections in New York these days since my one and only connection from up there now lives in Austin, TX. Beyond that, though, I figured you'd be a good fit based on your "About Me" section. Is that kosher?

    If you get a chance, check out Maniacal Faith - a blog several good friends of mine [and I] put together. I'd like to hear your thoughts on some of the issues we've presented.

  2. Hello! Just bloghopping. Great blog!

    Happy blogging! :)

  3. As a fellow New Yorker (once of the village, now through a tunnel), I know that the experience can be both exciting and overwhelming, invigorating and exhausting. Best of luck as you create your path.
