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…………………………..
