Well, the group departs in about two days and I'm starting to feel almost prepared. Having parents that are doctors makes it hard to get out of the country without every type of pharmaceutical known to humanity, so I have been making multiple daily trips to Target. I think the pharmacy techs are beginning to think I'm falling to pieces. There are a lot of little things I need to remember (for example, enough socks and underwear!), and other more important things I'm afraid of forgetting like the charger for my Kindle (yes, that is almost more important than socks), and my camera.
There are a few things I'm nervous about (like flying and all the things that entails), but I have my ride to the airport arranged, bags not-quite packed but ready to be packed, and can't wait to get in the air. I have a really good feeling for this trip and am just praying that God will bless everybody going on the trip and all the people we encounter while we're there. I'm looking forward to hearing and seeing all the things God has set out for us!
