I’ve sent invitations to Rotarians, past GRSP students and others who are interested in mission work.  This is a public domain, so please share with anyone you think might be interested. 

I am nearly packed and ready to go.  It was pouring rain yesterday when I went to the grocery store to pick up some snack food for my trip, so I never made it to Wal-Mart.  BUT…………… I did just pick up some bubble gum and just paid for it myself.  Easier than the hassle of fighting with my umbrella getting in and out of the car.

I am very excited now and not worried about security as I was a couple of weeks ago.  The dangerous part will be traveling to and from the site, but we are told there will be security for us.  I believe once we are there, we will be fine.  I have told friends that packing is always interesting on an adventure trip versus a beach or ski trip.  (Yes, I call this an adventure trip.)  Everyone says to bring toilet paper, which was what we were told when we traveled to India on a polio mission trip.  They were right then and I suspect they may be right again.

I will miss America while I am gone and I will appreciate it even more when I return.  God bless her!!!!!

Signing out for now…………………………..

About lynntclarke

I am an attorney by trade, but love to travel. I am in my "golden" years and decided to blog about some of my trips, mainly to keep a diary of my experiences, so that I can do picture books for my travels and remember what I did each day. When you travel, you tend to forget the day before as you are having such wonderful new experiences. The blog will be there forever, I suppose, but memories fade fast. I hope you learn something worthwhile as you read. If not, then that is okay, too. Enjoy your own travels!!!
