Hello Newark, I'm back.
As I was thinking about it and comparing Carlsbad, CA, to here in Newark, NJ, there are two things that stuck out to me. Carlsbad is loaded with money and they make their environment beautiful, but here in Newark I feel as if the Lord Himself has breathed life into me. Honestly Newark does not look pretty to me, but the closer to the mission I got the more spiritually alive I felt. It is like a choice I have to make: do I want the beautiful environment or do I want a great spiritual life? It is a tough choice, but I do believe that the spiritual life is more important than the physical beauty of an environment.
