I leave in 4 days, early morning on Sunday the 2nd. My morning has been filled with searcing flight information and airline details. I range from very excited to very nervous depending on the hour. I have a small pile of things together, but otherwise haven’t begun packing.
On another note, I went on a 6 day roadtrip from Thursday through Tuesday to a wedding of a good friend in Northwest Iowa. I also stayed with friends and was able to see my sister in central Iowa. This was a great opportunity to say some last minute goodbyes for the summer before going into “Greece mode” as I call it, where I rarely go more than a few minutes without thinking about this coming journey.
-reading the letters of those who wrote encouragement for my trip
-seeing Meggan and Pavlos again, and getting to know them better
-finally beginning what has been talked about for months!
-letting go and letting God do whatever he wants with me in a new context.
-missing my support system (family/friends/loved ones)
