In just over twelve hours, I will be on a plane bound for Tokyo. Another six-hour flight to Bangkok, then twelve more hours via van and/or pickup to the youth hostel in northern Thailand.
It's finally happening!! After ten years of waiting to go on a mission trip, three years of waiting for a trip with my dad and siblings, and a whole year of waiting for Thailand, it has arrived!! No reaction GIF or amount of exclamation points could describe my emotions right now.
I spent most of my day packing and trying to relax as much as possible, getting off the fast and conserving my energy. Might watch a favorite movie to cool down my nerves before I get some sleep. I'm ready to go.
I'll be gone for a total of fourteen days. So don't expect any blog updates until at least June 26th or 27th. If you could pray for our group's safety, guidance, endurance, and discernment, I would be very grateful!
Goodbye, running water. Goodbye, hot dogs and burgers. Goodbye, Internet and all your social networks and blogs. Goodbye, my dear followers! See you in two weeks!
