The months turned into weeks, the weeks into days and now the days into hours … I leave tomorrow morning on a 7AM flight. Wow. All the dreaming, planning, fretting and hope have come to this, my last day in Detroit where I am spending it with closest friends and family. A day to have a last supper, store my car, kiss everyone I love, shed a few tears and gather my courage. After all it’s just me for up to a year, well me and all the new friends I have yet to meet. What has always seemed like a great opportunity and adventure is still that and somehow it’s also a little more, it’s real.
Pray with me this year for health and hope for those I meet and the person they meet in me. Read this blog, respond with questions and encouragement. I will post from time to time, highlighting some of the highlights, the beauty, the fun and the challenge.
Detroit, Minnesota, Phoenix, Iowa … I’ll see you next year!
