Well, it is Thursday, June 7, and I am three days away from beginning my great adventure in Cayes, Haiti. At this point, everything is still surreal. It is not going to be my first rendezvous, but certainly my longest. As I look at my two duffel bags that are busting at the seams, it begins to hit me how much time I am going to be spending away from my home. Nervousness begins to creep over me as I think about leaving behind the luxuries I am accustomed to. Then excitement overtakes me as I think of seeing the smiling faces of my friends down in Haiti, and the new task I am about to pursue. After that, sadness as I think of the "see you laters" I will be saying to all the people I love in the States.
My mission while in Haiti is to expose the children of Pwoje Espwa to as much English as possible in order to help them gain the fluency they will need for higher education. I will be posting messages and pictures as often as possible in order to keep you all at home up to date on my progress. In doing so, I expect to hear about what is going on back home! I love you all!
