A post for good measure, seeing as I'm a short month away from leaving. Since my last post, I have applied for my visa (much more trouble than I expected), signed my missionary service agreement (found that notary!), and biggest of all, raised nearly all my support. My friends, my parents' friends, and my church family have given to me so generously; I came home from Nashville and it was all just waiting for me. I have completely forgotten about renewing my BLS and PALS until I read my last blog, so this thing has been useful after all.
The reality of being away from my friends, family, home, and Chickfila for 10 months is starting to sink in. I think James and my mom are both going to visit while I'm there....you think they can get a number one with a sweet tea through customs?
edit: Thanks to Becky Smith, I can now add links to other blogs. Let me know if you want to be added!
