I’ll be flying to Madagascar in 13 days.

It sounds weird telling people that. I’ve gotten lots of different responses as well ranging from “You’re absolutely crazy for quitting your job! I can’t believe you are doing it for free!” to “What an awesome opportunity! You will learn and grow so much!” Honestly, sometimes my own thoughts range between those extremes too.

Thanks to everyone who has been super encouraging to me the past few weeks and months. I have great friends and family and I know I’ll be thought of and prayed for while I’m away for the next 10 months. I have never been much of a social media-er or blogger but I am going to make an effort to post intermittent updates on this blog at least while I’m across the world!
