After a flight being cancelled, catching the next flight, and waiting to discover my luggage is probably not going to be at the airport anytime soon - I ask for it to be delivered and come late to staging.
There are 31 of us going to Nepal. We've been given Nexus tablets donated to use during our service, which will be interesting with more than likely no Wi-Fi but I'm definitely grateful to have it!
The day began early for us to ensure we're where we're supposed to be on time and after a slight scare of being told we'd have to be charged $100 for our second bag - it was resolved without the fee and I went through the quickest and easiest security I've ever been! O'hare has redeemed themselves from last night! Also a big bonus, somehow my rearranging of things made my suitcases under weight. :-)
This will probably be my last post until I arrive in Nepal, although if we're friends on Facebook - I may occasionally post things still. I was able to get my phone postponed for the length of my service for free instead of what I had planned for.
I'm excited, nervous, and probably anything else you could think! One girl studied abroad where I used to live in Australia. There are a lot of names, which our Facebook group has helped me with prior to meeting everyone, but not all people knew about it.
I read the newest book from Robin Jones Gunn on the way here yesterday and while it didn't hit me full force, I did come to a realization that I want everyone to know (hence the title). I'll leave it to y'all to look up, but I truly do with all my friends and family.
Co-workers, you're included in my friends. I've loved working with y'all!
Keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I fly to Nepal and go through training these next 3 months. I'll continue to keep y'all posted as often as I'm able!
