I can’t give you all the details, mostly because I don’t have all the details, but the situation has changed with Project Letters to Lauren Faust. I didn’t send Jayson Thiessen an email today, but that’s because it looks like some new, more promising leads are opening up and I don’t want to use up my lifeline just yet. Please keep praying that God will work in this situation and that I’ll be able to deliver those letters soon. I’m actually really excited about this right now, especially knowing that the end may be in sight, but we haven’t reached the end just yet. I’ll keep you posted, and I promise that unless Lauren reads the letters tomorrow, I’ll post something more interesting. Thanks for your prayers and your patience, friends. You’re the best.

Thursdays are always obscenely busy for me, so I don’t usually have time to post anything of significance, but tonight I wanted to ask you guys to pray for me. Two months ago, I launched Letters to Lauren Faust, a project aiming to deliver letters from grateful bronies to Lauren thanking her for her work on MLP:FiM, to a far more expansive response than I was expecting. Tomorrow morning, I will be emailing Friendship is Magic’s Assistant Director, Jayson Thiessen, to ask for his help in delivering these letters to Ms. Faust, and I would greatly appreciate your prayers that God would make my words effective and bring about success in this endeavor. This is my last and best chance at a successful delivery of the 145 letters that I’ve collected, so I’m a little nervous, but I know that it’s now or never. I’ll update you on the situation as soon as I can, and thank you in advance for your prayers.
I’m writing this blog post while my study partner for the New Testament Survey final makes a McDonald’s run. When he gets back, hopefully we can complete the four hours of joint studying our professor requires in order for us to work together on the final tomorrow. While that’s really not as tedious as it sounds, mostly thanks to copious amounts of Swedish Fish Eggs and random fits of distracted ramblings, it is certainly time consuming. Ah, well, what else could one expect from finals week?
So I was planning on writing a nice Mother’s Day post yesterday, but the Letters to Lauren Faust project sort of exploded and took over my entire Sunday. While that is undeniably the coolest interruption I’ve ever had the privilege to experience, the busyness of it all put me off my scheduled blogging groove a little, so I might not be able to write a Mother’s Day post to do my Mom justice until finals are out of the way (sorry, Mom).
Speaking of Letters to Lauren Faust, as of now the collection is at 121, which is absolutely astounding, and the submissions have mostly quieted down. I really need to set aside some time to read them all, there are some incredible stories in there. A big thanks goes out to all the bronies who submitted their letters, and an extra big thanks to mazeedibeedi and ThreeSix on PonyGAF for sending the post to Equestria Daily, and to Sethisto at Equestria Daily for featuring Letters to Lauren Faust. Without you this project never would have become what it did. You guys are fantastic. As for the progress of the project, I have sent Lauren a note on deviantArt informing her of our endeavor and asking her to stop by and take a look, but she hasn’t been active there since then. She should get the note next time she logs in, and with any luck she’ll read the letters and send some kind of confirmation that she did so. Which would be awesome beyond words.
I guess that’s all the news I have for this scatter-brained update post, and Darius will be back with his McFood any minute now, so without further ado this is your friendly neighborhood faithful student Tim Newton signing out and hitting the books. Or maybe I should just read them. Yeah, that would make more sense.
