just to update

As most of you know, I'm home, and things are going well. I started working at the childcare center at my mom's church, which has been so fun. It keeps me busy but is still flexible and not stressful at all. It's nice to have a few weeks to be around healthy babies that just want to snuggle! They don't cry when I come near them or anything!
I spoke to my church, Grace Bible, last Sunday and it went so well. (I think, I don't remember anything I actually said). But my church is going to give me a huge chunk of my support, which was so encouraging. God is faithful. I can see the finish line now!
So what I have left to do is: send in my application for my South African visa, which I know I need to do but I really don't want to get passport photos taken; send in my missionary service agreement, which involves me tracking down a notary; figure out what date I'm actually leaving; get my anti-malarial prescription filled; renew my BLS and PALS so I don't have to worry about that when I come back; raise about $3,000 more dollars; decide where I'm applying to grad school; and actually apply! That's all!
Other than the first thing, I'm probably not doing any of that this week because Sunday I'm going to Nashville! So if you're there, and you're reading this, I want to see you! I'll be there for about a week so I will have lots of lots of times I'll need to eat.

Shout out to my LOST friends: Umm....last night did not answer anything and really stressed me out. The Oceanic Six? SIX?

Number one - Passport photos are not supposed to be glamorous! No one likes them...kind of like drivers license pics!

Number two - working at the CDC...hope that's going well. Sounds like fun.

Number three - I think *maybe* Rita Anderson at MHBC is a notary. ????

Number four - We need to get together sometime soon! Sorry I wasn't able to come to the movie but I had seen it less than a week before. Hope you enjoyed it.
