I can't be more excited to go to Ghana, a completely foreign country, and with even all the prep work we are doing here in North America, know that I have no idea what to expect when I get there. I know that there's a reason why I am a part of this incredible team, and doing the work we are called to do there—I can't say I know the reason, but I think that's all part of the experience. Somehow, spending my summer in a stinky, hot climate, doing physical labor, and bathing by buckets is the only way I would ever want to spend it. Helping the people and the community we will be in will be more than what I'm sure any one of us could ask for—the interactions, relationships, and life-changing experiences we will face. I know I, and the rest of the team will come back changed—and that is something we can expect.
