USA in my 20 years of life. As you can imagine I was pretty nervous for the trip. Over 24 hours of travel as well as immersing myself in the culture of a new foreign country were very intimidating for me. Not only that but I was the financial leader of our group so I was in charge of all the money for the trip. All of these things were making me feel very uneasy about this trip.
Throughout the school year the trip seemed very surreal to me. It never really seemed like it was actually going to happen. Not up until I stepped on the plane had I had any uneasiness in my stomach but after that the traveling was very long and stressful spent with many different tangents of what would happen over the two upcoming weeks.
Coming into these two weeks I thought I’d be ready to leave after one week was up, but now that my time here is ending I want to stay for another 2 weeks and don’t want to go home. I have truly enjoyed this place and these people and recommend that anyone take the opportunity to come to Hope School and serve.
