I had my first chile meeting today (!!) and it was really really really good. I met the other 6 people who are going, got updated on what to bring, and what we'd be doing. It's winter there, like 30 to 50 degrees during the day, and we'll be working mostly in the schools there (that the missionaries we are visiting help at). I am really excited. So after the meeting, I was standing outside with 3 others (whom all seemed like good friends) and we just all sorta hung out and talked for an hour. I wish i could express how good that was. I feel like this huge wieght has been lifted off me... I guess I was so worried that I would feel out of place, or that i didn't belong... but this was exactly what i needed.
anyways, So, yeah. Most of my anxieties are gone now, and I am realizing how much I really need this whole trip. I have been my usual sit-around-home-waiting-for-people-to-call-me self, and this is my chance to get off my lazy butt and do something amazing. I will get to see another part of the world, make friends with new people, share my faith with a ton of chilean kids, practice my spanish, grow as a christian, and be a part of something great.
So I am leaving on August 9th (a 12hr flight)and then coming home again on the 20th.
