Countdown to Kenya: 105 days!
Look at that number up there. It's almost down to double digits. And my count down to leave California for Washington is just 24 days. 24 DAYS. Time is flying by. I even have an app on my phone that shows the days ticking away. It's bananas.
Life right now is so exciting, but very overwhelming. I have a lot to do in a little time; getting all the necessary vaccines, finishing paperwork, reading books, practicing music, preparing to move, raising support. In the past week, I have gotten 3 shots and started taking the oral vaccine, and I have probably 4 more shots to get before I'm good to go. Now, I'm working on getting addresses and getting all my support letters sent out this week. And I have to go through all of my stuff here in Berkeley and get rid of anything that I don't want to take home. All this while still working full time. Thank goodness my work is really slow right now so that I have more time to get the important things done. There is a lot to do, but I know it will all get done and will be absolutely worth it. This next year is going to be an amazing experience, and I know that God has amazing things in store for me.
Thank you all for reading my last post, it was really exciting to finally share what I'll be doing this next year. Today I wanted to give you a little more information on where I'll be going and what I'll be doing. As I said in my last post, I will be serving at the Rift Valley Academy in Kijabe, Kenya. Kijabe is located at the edge of the great Rift Valley, about an hour north of the country's capital of Nairobi. Kijabe is Maasai for "Place of the Wind".

I cannot wait to get to Kenya and meet the staff and students I will be living life with and grow with this next year. And I am so excited to share all of the experience and adventures I have with you. Please follow the blog if you would like to continue getting updates on this journey.
