Doing Well at Doing Good

Doing Good
One of the major efforts this summer for Joseph is his work with his immigration internship through the Utah Health & Human Rights Project He will be interviewing and determining whether certain refugees are good candidates for asylum. Generally speaking, candidates for asylum are victims of severe discrimination (often violent) in their home countries because of their race, gender, political views, religion, ethnicity, sexuality etc.

He has already been assigned two refugees to work with and is very excited to work with the UHHP this summer.

Boot Camp
Joseph will be starting his lawyering skills class tomorrow. It is being taught "boot camp" style. That means it is taught Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. He will be doing lots of role-play exercises, learning to interview, counsel and negotiate with clients etc.

A Good Little Fisher(wo)man
Cheyenne was featured on Channel Two news this past weekend with the photo Dad took of her the photo of the week. It took a lot of work for her to reel in the big trout at Hyrum Dam, but she did it. And you can see by the smile on her face that she is proud of her accomplishment!

The Galilee
There are few places as beautiful as the Galilee in Israel or more significant to the believing Christian. Tim posted a few of the photos from his recent Holyland trip on Facebook tonight. You can see the Places here: Places: The Galilee, Israel

And the Faces here: Galilee Faces
