From March 26-April 27th I was in Palmer, Lake CO attending missionary training. It was a wonderful time of learning practical methods of how to learn a language and diving deep into heart issues of how I handle conflict and what it means to live as a missionary, part of this is knowing how to say goodbye well. I arrived back in Lynchburg, VA very late the evening of the 27th and then was in my dear friend Erin’s wedding the next day, where I was able to see lots of friends and give them one last hug before flying over an ocean. Then on Sunday I said goodbye to my sister and my parents and I drove to Washington, DC. I flew out the next day. Saying goodbye is hard, but I know I am right where the Lord wants me. I am very thankful for modern technology and will be able to keep in touch regularly. Yay for facebook!
