10 Days Left!

Well, almost 10 days left.  I depart for my year long mission service in the next week and a half and I am truly excited and ready for this opportunity that I have been given.  

Earlier this month I, along with my fellow YASCers, were able to spend two weeks in Toronto learning and developing our cross-cultural skills.  I was able to meet people from the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) and from the UCC (United Church of Canada).  Their stories and experiences helped me be able to better prepare for the upcoming year.  I am very thankful for the people that I was able to get to know and to spend those two weeks with.  Over the next year I plan on keeping up with my fellow missionaries as they go on to their own placements and experience what God has to offer.

The journey awaits!  

Just want to give a shout out to Andrew Joyce as he travels to his placement in the Philippines today! Be safe and enjoy it!
