These last few days I’ve been “cleaning” and organizing my laptop, trying to free up as much space as I can and work out all of the kinks.
While I was sorting through iPhoto I came to my Bolivia folder. Looking through all of my photo’s from a year ago I couldn’t help but smile and then cry, because I realized this time around, it’s going to be very different.
I’m excited about some of the changes. I’m excited to gain the sense of independence I wasn’t granted on the World Race, and I’m excited to really dig deep and get involved long term.
But boy am I going to miss my community. During our month in Bolivia I was blessed to share the ministry not only with my 4 other teammates but with the 6 incredible women on Team Daniel as well. I was consistently surround by people who knew me and loved me, and while I know I will build relationships when I get to Cochabamba, I have a feeling the first couple months will be hard, when all my memories and experiences exist only from before, and the people that I share those memories with won’t be there.
But with this new opportunity comes a new chance to make memories, and possibly even greater memories. So I’m not scared or apprehensive. This is going to be great and amazing and I CAN NOT WAIT!
And let me say, if there are any experiences like the one below, I have nothing to worry about!
