Almost a year ago, I started this little blog with a very ecstatic post about officially being registered to travel to Sudan...and though it has been nearly a year and I've gone to Sudan and back, I am just as excited today as I write this!!
I have already shared with you that I will be spending three months in Kampala this summer for an internship with Aid Sudan in which I will be helping them with teacher training materials and other fun, nerdy educational stuff. However, my exciting news today is that the Sudan trip dates have been posted and I'm once again looking forward to heading into Southern Sudan this summer...not once, but TWICE!!!
Here's the plan:
May 8: I head to Houston, meet up with the team, and then depart for Africa. I will be going to Tonj, Sudan on a women's ministry trip. I am SO excited to be on a trip that will be focusing on the needs of the women of Southern Sudan!! I am also thrilled to be able to visit a different village, and to begin my internship with time in Sudan!
Begin internship in Kampala! As I've shared before, I will be developing teacher training materials for the Philip Project missionaries, the radio stations, and short-term mission teams. I'm nervous and excited!
Blaise departs from Houston and flies over to Kampala with the Nasir team, and then we will travel into Nasir, Sudan together!! I'm SO, SO excited that Blaise and I get to go into Sudan together...and especially that I will be returning to Nasir! (Don't worry, someone will be house sitting for us to take care of our beloved Cally!)
Blaise and I will stay in Kampala after the Nasir team heads home. We will get a feel for the city together and he will experience life in East Africa.
We don't have the exact date yet, but we will be returning home together.
God worked miraculous wonders in putting the timing together! I'm just so thrilled that the countdown is once again on, and I get to go into Sudan not once, but TWICE!!! I'm also super pumped because I am taking my good photography gear this year, so you better believe that there will be LOADS of pictures!!
