I am in the process of getting braces put on my teeth, yesterday I went to the dentist and got elastics put on my uper back teeth to seperate the teeth so the braces will be ready to be on by Monday. The elastics hurt a lot because every time I put pressure on my teeth the elastic is pushed up in my gums. So far watermelan and ice helps. And if all goes well I should have braces by Monday! I am only getting them on the top and the orthadontist is saying they should only be on for about 10 months, then I have to use a retaner. Sorry for the messy spelling but I thought it would be nice to update my blog.
I would love to hear about the missions trip kgt’s youth did. You can leave a post or if you have my email you can email me. I was praying it would be all good and stuff.

I am doing well. Last night we watched Hidalgo. It was a very good movie. If you have ever seen “Night at the Museum” it is very good as well. Today we are going to Fountain Square, which is kind of an outside mall. There is a store called Hong Kong. The movies there are 3 Manat, which is about $3.50 Canadian. There is also a coffee shop in the Old City (next to Fountain Square) and it is called Chocolata. We’ll have some lunch there today. I am very excited. If you ever visit Azerbaijan we will have to take you to the mud volcanoes. There are extraordinary. Our new youth pastor, Joe, fell into one of them and was up to his waist in mud. Look on the website for pics. Yesterday we went to the Ramstore, (they don’t sell Rams there) it is like a real grocery store and it almost felt like home. I got a bread there and it was wholewheat. It was 13 qapik (which is about 15 cents). I am so happy that I can finally start my blog. Stay posted for new stuff. Michaella.\

Our friends, the Mollenhauers, have five kids and they are all our ages except the youngest. Their dad plays on a basketball team called Az Top. We went to a game tonight and they lost, but it was good to see my friends.
On the weekend I am going on a retreat with the Youth Group to somewhere in Nebron. It is called Malibou Resort. I wish it had “And Spa” attached to the end of the name but it doesn’t. I am looking forward to it but I know it will be different from my last youth retreat in Canada.
School is going well. We have Stanford Testing all week. It isn’t all that bad. These are tests that are from the States. It will tell us how we compare with other students at this level. The tests will end on Thursday. In literature we are writing Poem Anthologies, a group of poems made by the same author. I am enjoying it.
Church is good. For Easter we had a nice Easter service. Had a great skit performed by some youth and young adults and a choreographed song done by the youth. In the afternoon we enjoyed lunch with friends and an Easter Hunt outside. Then we came back to church for a Drama called “The Sacrifice”. It was good!
That’s all for now, I hope it will not take as long to publish my next entry as last time.
