Welcome to my blog! Ha! That seems strange... I suppose I will get used to it soon! :)
I am so very excited to be leaving for Costa Rica in only twelve short days, and I would love to share my adventures with you. I don't know what this summer holds, but I know that the One who does has great plans for me and I feel so blessed that included in those is this trip!
I am currently feeling, admittedly, a bit nervous, but also so very excited! We had our last meeting as a group before our departure last Sunday. Receiving the piece of paper that described my host family was so exciting: I will be living in the "nicer" neighborhood with a couple whose two adult children no longer live in the house. My host mom is a homemaker...hopefully this parallel will make me miss home a little bit less! Most excitingly, I found out that I will be living in the same neighborhood as a new friend from the group, Cathy. Cathy and I are both in Campus Christian Fellowship, and we are excited to "church shop" in Costa Rica (as well as actual shopping, I am sure! :) ) The fact that she will be close to my house is so reassuring and exciting!
I will likely post again prior to my departure. Your prayers are envied--specifically, please pray that I will continue to be filled with His peace that gives me the confidence to walk boldly through doors He has opened.
¡Te abraza mucho!
