Countdown to Take-Off

“To live would be an awfully big adventure.”  -J.M. Barrie,  Peter Pan

Confession: This blog hasn’t received nearly the time or attention over the past few months that I intended to give it.  By that, I mean that it honestly has not gotten any of my attention at all.  Right now, it is a little bit of everything.  This fall, I’ll be working to get it back on track, but for the next few weeks, I’m actually going to use this blog as a travel blog for family and friends back home while I am in Costa Rica.

What am I doing?

For those of you that don’t know, I’m heading to Costa Rica for five weeks for a combination study abroad and missions program.  I’ll be taking classes, living with a local family, and working with a ministry in Costa Rica for the duration of my stay.  Beyond that, it will be a total adventure. 

Why am I doing it?

A couple of reasons.  On the practical side, as a Humanitarian Studies minor, I am required to spend at least four weeks immersed in another culture (not that I’m complaining).  On a more personal note, studying abroad and traveling internationally have been dreams of mine for as long as I can remember.   Even as I sit here writing this, it feels incredibly surreal, and I’m so grateful God has given me this opportunity! 

In four days, I’ll embark on this new adventure.  I’m so excited to see what God has in store for my time there and can’t wait to share about it here on the blog.  All along the way, I would be incredibly greatly for your prayers!

Hasta luego,
