Well this is the first of hopefully (but not likely:) many entries into this blog about my upcoming year in Africa. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I'm spending next year at Heri Adventist Hospital in Kigoma, Tanzania with my amazing friend Neil Patel.
I've been waiting for a call for a while...trying to get in contact with different places but nothing seemed to work out. Then we heard about Heri and everything seemed to line up.
So to drag on this attempt at a decent blog posting I'm going to ramble on about what my next few months are going to look like. As soon as I get out of taking finals in a few weeks, a friend and I are driving back to Walla Walla and then down to Oregon where I'll get to spend two days before I fly out to Mozambique to spend a month with my family. In mid-June I'm flying back to work at Big Lake Youth Camp for the summer. My job is RAD counselor so I'm going to be hanging out with kids while we go rock climbing, whitewater rafting, and do other adventurous activities.
I'll probably be leaving for Tanzania in mid-September assuming everything works out well. Yay for summer vacation! It's only six tests, one presentation, four papers, and four quizzes away.
