The day is finally here!! As much as I’ve tried to anticipate this day, I really couldn’t imagine the all the feelings that I would be feeling. Seeing my family drive away after dropping me at the airport was probably the moment it actually hit me that I’m really leaving. For some reason, my mind can’t comprehend that I will be in a different country for 5 months, so I honestly don’t have any emotions right now. However, I know there will be many more moments throughout the next two days when reality will settle in & everything will become real to me. But until then, I guess I’ll just chill 🙂
This is my first ever blog so bear with me if I’m terrible at this. I’ve created this blog for a few reasons. The first is so my parents won’t ask me a thousand questions when I get home. I know they’re incredibly excited for me, but I really don’t want to explain every part of my trip when I return. With this blog, they can stay updated without being worried about their baby girl. The second reason is somewhat stay connected with those close to me. I won’t be on any social media while I’m there because I want to eliminate as many distractions as possible. This is so I can truly focus on being in the moment with the people down there. And the third reason is to allow people to know what beautiful things the Lord will be doing in Bolivia. Although I know this is my journey, I don’t want to keep it to myself. I want my people to experience this with me, even in the smallest ways.
My plane is about to start boarding so before I end this, I ask those that are reading to be praying not only for me, but for the people I will be in touch with down there. This is not about me, it’s about them. I am going for them. To love them in a way that represents Christ.
I’ve opened comments to the blog so please feel free to leave your thoughts 🙂 I’ll be checking in sometime next week.. so yeah!
with love, Sun
