It’s currently 12:47am here in Chicago, Illinois. I know I should be sleeping right now, but the anxiousness of tomorrow, (or today, in better terms.) is keeping me awake. I really can’t believe I’m leaving for South Africa today.
I wish I could sit here and tell you that the only two emotions I’m feeling is excitement and happiness, but if I did that, I would be lying to you all. Yes, I am really excited and happy, but I’m also a million other emotions as well; nervous, scared, lonely, sad, uncomfortable, weird. I never thought at the age of 18 years old, I would be going to live in another country with a host family I’ve never met before for 11 months.
I know that God is faithful, and He alone is GOOD. Being uncomfortable can be a sucky feeling sometimes, but in the end, it can be the most beautiful thing in the whole entire world.
This will be my last blog for a few days until I get settled in in South Africa. Thank you to my friends and family, who have been amazing supporters of me; including Sean, who has encouraged me to keep pressing forward even when I’m tired. (:
South Africa, here I come; ready or not.
