Invite Arrived!

After a long week of waiting, many inches of snow, and just hours to arrive before I left for spring break, the invite arrived!  My roommate texted me the long awaited invite package had arrived while I was in lab.  My sister kindly drove it up to me before she left town.  With Mom and Dad on speaker phone, I opened the package….

Burkina Faso!!  I leave June 7th for Pre-Service Training.

I’m very excited and cannot wait to learn more about my future home.  🙂
