Merry Christmas!

As I try take a breather for Christmas festivities I can't help but keep thinking about how soon the trip is. It's so surreal I won't believe it's happening until we actually set foot in Africa. Wow its even weird hearing myself say that. On this Christmas I think about all that I will be leaving behind and it is intimidating but I try to focus on being thankful for this incredible opportunity that has been presented for me. Anticipating the amazing things to come makes all the Christmas hype seem so trivial, I will be happy to just spend this time with family before I depart om this incredible journey. This Christmas I can relate to Joseph and Mary who had to venture out in faith on their journey into the unknown.
Merry Christmas
