Look what you made [her] do. When a minimalistic, black furry coated Taylor Swift stands above a mound of her old personas, kicking them in the face as they try to reach her, it is clear that the old Taylor is dead, and the new one is here to stay. Critics can say what they want about Swift’s comeback, but this article will have nothing to do with the endless criticizing and nitpicking of Ms. Swift. As a loyal Taylor Swift fan, I pledged my allegiance to the star a long time ago; therefore, my tolerance for fake fans is slim to none.
Just weeks after the 2016-2017 school year ended, the South Africa Mission team, led by Elizabeth Ables, Whitney Panetta, Greg Lisson, Andrea Shupert and Emily Zavitz, embarked on their 15-hour-journey across the Atlantic Ocean to Johannesburg, South Africa. Upon arrival, they were greeted by the welcoming staff of Godfirst City Church, their host for the week. After a long bus ride to Hoopoe Haven, a local bed and breakfast where the team stayed throughout the week, they unpacked and settled in. Jet-lagged yet excited, the team was ready to serve.
From day one, the team was put to work making maternity packs with the Grace Project, writing encouraging notes and packaging supplies for mothers who might not have anything. The following day, the team visited the township, Zandspruit, and partnered with Impact Africa, participating in door-to-door evangelism throughout the town. In South Africa, townships are informal settlements consisting mostly of shacks without running water, plumbing or any of the basic American amenities we take for granted. For many students, this experience was the most powerful of the entire trip.

With their final production of the 2016-2017 season, the Wesleyan Wolf Players ended on a solemn note with the emotional, convicting and memorable performance of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible.”
Taking place in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, The Crucible follows the twisted agendas, drastic behavior and the widespread paranoia of the Salem Witch Trials. More specifically the story follows the mischievous and deceitful Abigail Williams, played by Darby Carroll, as her web of lies entangles her former lover John Proctor and his wife Elizabeth, played by Seniors Zach Green and Emily Sabonis-Chaffee.

What are your plans for the future? Well, when I stop crying about the reality that I won’t be back next fall, I will settle in to my role as a work from home wife and mom. I am excited to serve wherever God has a place for me. Jeff and I have applied to be foster parents, so I pray that God will open this door for us soon. Finally, I will continue to engage my entrepreneurial heart as a Manager at Beautycounter. Our mission is to put safer personal care products in to the hands of everyone, as we advocate and work to make an impact on a largely unregulated skin care industry in the US. I also hope to sub for Global Justice whenever possible and even fill in as a chaperone on mission trips as needed! Keep Reading
