I hope to access this blog while I'm traveling to post some pictures, tell some stories and keep people updated on my experiences. I'm excited to go, but there are still many details to attend to, and the rest of life does not stop, so much there to deal with as well. I hope you join me on this journey, and I hope I have internet access in Rwanda to keep you updated on my experiences!

And we're...not off yet, but getting ready
In 23 days I'll be part of a group of 25 people traveling to Rwanda. I'm an adult volunteer on the Sierra Pacific Synod Youth Committee and thanks to a generous grant from the Lilly Foundation, through Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, and some serious fundraising, we leave June 26th from San Francisco.
