In less than four weeks now our team will be meeting at the airport at some incredibly early hour to begin the journey to Slovakia. Right now, however, I have to be honest, it is just one of many things on my mind. As a fifth grade teacher, I am overwhelmed with the last days of a school year and report cards. I’m also trying to work on plans for […]

Preparations


Well, it’s a beautiful day and I finally got some free time to write on the blog. I’m still in awe of God for putting me on this team, I truly don’t think I could have asked to travel to a far off country with better people.

In fact, I should have left for Roseburg, Oregon an hour and a half ago. Anyway, the longer post will hopefully explain a lot more and be more meaningful. Just wanted to […]

Some Brevity


There really are no words to describe how excited I am to be traveling to Slovakia again this summer.  For several reasons: discovering more about the culture, sight-seeing, bonding with my team, but I am ESPECIALLY excited to reunite with my Slovak friends (and to make new ones of course)!! I have stayed in touch with them via facebook. And I am just itching to be with them already. They […]
