My Chicago Trip It was fun, the Chicago trip of course is what I mean because whenever you go on a trip you will typically enjoy it unless you hate people and are super antisocial. But when I went on this trip I enjoyed it as it was the first time I had ever left the state and leaving the state is something that was really cool to me. I had also heard all of these stories about Chicago being the murder capital of the U.S which kind of freaked me out but it didn’t freak me out as much as it did my brother. Because you see my brother is different, and will typically get freaked out whenever he goes somewhere where a lot of people are. Therefore my family doesn’t really get to go out to places because we don’t want my brother to have a meltdown
Madison, Wisconsin also had a large number of enjoyable volunteer opportunities. The prevailing influential of these was The River Food Pantry, which is the largest food pantry in the Madison area. The River typically has at least 150 individuals or families receive assistance per day. For at least once or twice per week I volunteered there, therefore, when the team deployed to assist with the South Carolina flood disaster, it disappointed me that I could no longer volunteer there. I had contradictory feelings about the team’s deployment to South Carolina, on one hand it meant that we would be able to directly assist the flood survivors, alternately this meant that I said goodbye to people that I began to enjoy working with and abandoned all the plans for the last few weeks of the round that I became enthusiastic about.

To begin, Osteen’s career is founded on the social mobility that televangelism offered his father, John, who began his ministerial career preaching in a feed store converted into Lakewood church, and ended his career as the beloved minister of upwards of fifteen-thousand congregants.5 After his John passed away in 1999, Joel was able to build off of the momentum that his father’s success laid out for him to create one of the largest megachurches in America, boasting an average of thirty-thousand attendees each week, not including the millions of televisual attendees who watch or listen from home. The congregation’s growth, generated by Joel’s succession of his father’s role as head pastor, made Osteen a household name and launched him to stardom. This made his business as a minister and author of multiple New York Times bestsellers, incredibly lucrative, allowing him to surpass the success and wealth of his father, tying televangelist and America ideals together by embodying the American ideal of social
