This is it. 22 days.
22 days until I say, “See you later” to those I love. 22 days until I will be packed with my clothes, ukulele, Bible, camera, and a heart ready to see what God has in store. 22 days until I will be flying to the first of four destinations. 22 days until I see the beginning of the amazing eight months I will be spending outside of the US. 22 days is it.
Croatia, India, Brazil, Japan. Just four small words. But to me, they have a huge meaning. Those are the places I will be living at for the next eight months. Those are the places I will be meeting new friends, trying new foods, experiencing new cultures, and sharing God’s love with others. Those are the places I hope to learn more about God, other people, and myself.
I don’t know what is in store for me these next eight months. I have expectations of what the trip might look like, but who knows what can happen. I am so thrilled to see what God has in store for me. It will take a lot of faith, trust, and prayer.
So the countdown begins. 22 days.
