Born for leaving

  1. I wish I could get my thoughts down faster. I’m too careful for that.
  2. I hope these two suitcases can hold everything I need… ok, want for the next three months.
  3. I am getting better with my camera little by little. 🙂 (I will post a few shots from recent photo sessions with friends)
  4. I had a ridiculously sentimental weekend (well last two weekends really) traveling and visiting friends. I appreciate the friendships I have formed over distances even more than before. And I appreciate each breath that God gives me when I wake up each morning… especially after seeing a friend in the hospital Sunday after a close-call accident.

Panamá::Leaving in approximately 30 hours::
Things I am excited about for this trip:
  • Visiting a new country. (duh)
  • Spending time with the precious León family.
  • Working with an orphanage and indigenous people groups.
  • Bettering my Spanish.
  • Meeting new friends.
  • Getting a clearer vision from God for my future.
  • Participating in a couple more medical mission trips.
I feel:
  • Ready
  • Half excited, half anxious
  • Hopeful
I know that to many people whom I know, three months in another country away from family and friends is a piece of cake. Then to others who have never left their parents’ house, it seems like a huge deal. I am somewhere in between and can almost say that I feel tranquil and indifferent about it. I have no reservations, I just feel like I am doing what I should be doing. I know it will be only the beginning of exciting things that are ahead. 🙂
