As told by Jessica Roppolo
Today is my 13th birthday, and you only turn 13 once. Just thinking about spending the day traveling in the church van to Mission, Texas, exhausted me. My mom, Brandi Roppolo, came with me to this mission trip. She surprised me after the extremely long car trip, where my best friends kept me entertained all of the 6 hours, by buying cupcakes for the whole group. Everyone sang, “Happy Birthday” to me. Today was long and tiring day and tonight made me realize how much I love my mom. A question came up today that asked, “Who is the person that influence you most?” I knew that what my mom did for me tonight, that she was the person I look up to. She would do anything to make me feel happy and is very nice and kind to others. It’s my hope that our youth group is nice and kind and shows Jesus to people this week.
