So...it's 2:20 a.m. and I can't go to bed because I keep thinking that there is something else that needs done before I leave for Uganda in the morning. Why does traveling cause unneccessary anxiety? Really I feel more prepared than I have for any other trip. I packed 2 days in advance (that will probably never happen again) and I've made multiple lists and checked things off. It's a good thing I packed early because I had to buy an extra bin to pack stuff in because I had too many donations to fit in 2 plastic bins! That is a good thing and luckily since I'm going for missionary type purposes the airline allows me 3 checked bags for free:) I know this will be shocking for anyone to believe who has ever lived with or traveled with me, but I was able to fit all my clothes in my carry on luggage! Thanks so much to everyone who has lent their support through prayers, financially, and donations. You have and will continue to be such a blessing to me and others for the next 10 weeks!
Well, I think I will try to get a few hours sleep in my bed that I'm sure I'll miss. I can't wait to update everyone with my first impressions of my temporary new home and what's going on there. I'll try to keep you all updated at least once a week and possibly more (It'll depend on availability of Internet access and sharing with my housemates). I will occasionally be checking my e-mail as well so if you have a story that needs to be shared with me please don't leave me in the dark. It would be great to hear from you!
Next time you hear from me i'll be halfway accross the world!
Until next time...bye for now.
