July 1

As I type, my arms are shaking. Not only because it was arm day today at the gym, but because of the reality that in 17 days (not counting today) I will begin my first experience as a short-term missionary and the excitement is overwhelming.

This past month alone` has been a difficult one. The school year ended, I bombed the GRE, had an interview (and got the job), started the job (did I mention how challenging it is?), felt heavy hearted during the 6 month reminder that my dad is not here, I visited my hometown and have been so busy all around. My summer went from pool time to no time in the blink of an eye. And July is here.

July 18th we leave. Teams have been set, plane tickets bought, and hearts are being prepared.

I would not be anticipating this date if it hadn't been for you. You are the real MVP. So thank you. Thank you again for sending me to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Thank you for allowing me to have the opportunity to love on some kids and share the love of God. I'm not 100% sure of what to expect while I'm there, but I open to anything.
