The parable of the talents is pretty straight forward (Matthew. 25:14-30). If you practice and use the talents you have been given, you will develop them and find more along the way. While on the other hand, if you sit around like a lump on a log, you won't get any better... obvio. In fact, you can loose that very talent you were first given.
Considering myself a Jack...(or Jane?) of all trades, dabbling a little in everything, keeping the little talent I've got while pursuing others is quite important to me. So while I was out learning Spanish, preaching the good word, and acquiring Mexican tastebuds, I wanted to make sure my creative fingertips could still do their thing after 18 months time. Therefore, I made a goal to keep a sketchbook throughout my mission... something quite difficult to do when every moment of your day is planned out. But I managed to knock out a few sketches every now and then, especially of my companions. I place them before you now for your viewing pleasure.
