Hi friends and family!
This is just a quick post to let you know you've come to the right place :) This is indeed the illustrious page where I'll be writing about my experiences for the next 13 months as a volunteer with Amigos de Jesus, a home for orphaned children in Honduras (check them out here). Every few weeks I'll be posting here about my doings down South.
Thank you to all of you who have supported me thus far. I cannot tell you how grateful I am, and how inspired I have been by the outpouring of generosity I have experienced over the last few weeks. Asking for money from my friends, family and church was very difficult, but the reward has been seeing the incredible generosity and prayerful support that surrounds me on all sides. And I do believe very much in the work that is being done in this home for children; I know those funds have gone to good use.
The countdown has officially begun! A week from Saturday, August 3, I fly out of Philadelphia and begin this adventure. It doesn't quite seem real, and neither do the goodbyes that will need to be said in just a few days. Thankfully, there's plenty to do to prepare so I don't have to think too much about that part just yet! And there's also my growing excitement, along with all the nerves, to get me through the next few days of anticipation.
