San Juan Bautista mission was not in their plants to build, but there was a big gap between the San Carlos Borromeo Del Rio Carmelo Mission and Santa Clara de Asis Mission. The Spanish did not felt safe to travel from mission to mission if there was a big gap, they were afraid of the Indians that controlled that territory and had not been taught about Christianity, so Friar Lasuen and the Franciscans decided to make the mission of San Juan Bautista to cover the gap between missions.
The stress went away, my responsibilities are done in a perfect way. My stress level tolerance is a lot higher than others due to my past and my grit. Stress management is a work in progress for me but I always manage to see positives even if everything looks negative. According to Ryan Holiday (2014) “Failure shows us the way—by showing us what isn’t the way.”

I also think that one of the biggest strengths that our group has as a whole is each other because we can play off of each other’s strengths and use them to our advantage. Throughout my personal experiences as a volunteer, my ability to work with other people has allowed me to learn more and work harder. I really want to make a difference in any way that I can, and I think that my strengths will contribute to the team in a positive way.
