Only 6 MONTHS left until I plan to leave the USA again . First to France for language school, then to Senegal! I will have some time to learn language and culture before I’m fully engaged in our work in Senegal. But I look forward to being a teacher again and building new relationships in a new country. According to the duolingo app, I’m already 23% fluent in French! I’m not sure how reliable their measurements our considering I can say about 10 sentences.
Hello! I still plan to leave for Senegal by the end of December. I have a busy summer ahead but also some things to look forward to. In July I will get to meet my NEW NEPHEW who could be born at any time. This fall I will start MY LAST 4 CLASSES for my International Business degree! I’m excited to get back to work teaching English in Africa, but for now, I’m enjoying the journey.
Spending the holidays with my family was such a great opportunity. I also had some opportunities to raise funds for Africa while I was back in Minnesota. It’s a new year, and I have 3 big goals this year:
- Finish my degree (I will graduate early December!)
- Finish raising funds for Africa
- Move back to Africa before the end of the year
Of course I have other personal and spiritual goals as well. I’m back in Texas now and I am excited to spend this year in the USA visiting with all of you and sharing stories from Africa…and I look forward to a new chapter next year with a new assignment in a new country.
