Interfaith Health Fair

Asalamu Alaikum! (Notice how I'm inconsistent with that? Need to work on it)

Today, insha'allah, will be the Interfaith Health Fair my mosque, a synagogue and a church will be hosting!

Well technically it already started at 8am, but my shift starts at 11:30 am :D

I'll be helping out with the kids' activities with a friend and should be getting ready at this moment. (However I wanted to inform you guys, aren't I sweet?)

For the most part, I'm pretty nervous but it's not because there'll be Jews and Christians there -I'm actually looking forward to getting to know new people-, it's just a good kind of nervous.

Plus, this will be the 2nd time in my life that I've entered a church.
Blasphemy! Haha I kid, but when I was around 6 or 7 years old, this couple couldn't find ANYWHERE to hold their wedding and as an end result, held it in a church. (No there wasn't a priest or anything, this was just a reception using the church). Now don't think I'm ignorant, but when you're 6 years old and wandering around a church and you just happen to see a dead man nailed on a cross, you can get pretty freaked out.

And I was, I ran to my mom's friend crying (she's like an aunt to me) and spent the rest of the evening on her lap eating cake. I'm sure she missed out on all the dances consoling me. Thank you Auntie :)

Anywho, I'll be updating this post after I come back (Or should I just do a separate post?) if I do happen to make it insha'allah.

Wish me luck (And courage, and a steady a hand for facepainting, and $50 in tips for satisfied parents because I happened to replicate the Mona Lisa on their daughter's left cheek.)
