Well I got my call to be a Young Adult Volunteer on March 14th 2015. It was a very exciting and nerve-wracking event. I just couldn’t wait to find out where I would be going. When I finally got my letter, letting me know that New Orleans would be my site. I couldn’t be more excited! This was the new adventure I was looking for and I couldn’t wait to go. Now I only had to wait 5 months. The wait is definitely the hard part, but with every new day it gets me closer and closer to this coming journey. With the wait, also comes the realization that this is really happening to me. This is no longer the fantasy that I kept dreaming and hoping would finally happen. It is real and I finally get to do it!
I am also honored to say that I’m the first person from my presbytery to be apart of this amazing opportunity. I am so happy to have all the amazing support from friends, family, and members of my church and presbytery, and I cant wait to share all my amazing experiences with you on this journey. So I ask you all to keep me in your prayers over these next 70 days so don’t die of a heart attack (from how excited I am), before I actually get to leave for New Orleans.
