The Prequel

I am seven weeks away from my departure to Ghana. It seems surreal that the time has finally come. I have been waiting so long! I have a HUGE to do list to accomplish before I can leave feeling prepared.

Today I looked at the syllabus for what I will be teaching for the first time. It was a little overwhelming considering most of it involves Ghanaian culture, economics, environment, politics, and cultural aspects I am not yet familiar with. It looks as though I will be spending some significant time in the library before I leave! Also, much to my chagrin I will be teaching adolescent reproductive health. I know, laugh it up right! How awkward! Especially for such a reserved culture.

I am close to having all of my funding in place, just a couple thousand short. But, I praise God that I have the support of so many wonderful people! Please continue to pray for me as I prepare spiritually, emotionally, and educationally to leave!
