I cannot believe I am less than 2 months away from embarking on a life changing trip to Ghana, Africa. I just got my shots a few weeks ago and the excitement is starting to settle in! My arm did look odd with 3 bandages on each arm and they were sore for a few days but totally will be worth it. I have been so busy with my recent college graduation and new work endeavor these past months that I have simply lost track of time. As I read blogs about other travelers in Ghana I get more and more excited about my upcoming journey. The opportunity to help with education in Ghana will surely be a once in a lifetime experience that Andrea and I will remember forever. As I complete my pre placement form I have done alot of thinking as to why we chose Ghana. I remember years back I had spoken to Andrea on the phone and she had mentioned that she was determined to make it to Africa and volunteer. I got more involved in my local church in San Diego this past year and got to hear a few people speak out to ministry and reaching out to other communities. I became fascinated with their stories and experiences. I immediately felt like I needed to reach out and do something in another community. I spoke with Andrea about my desire to volunteer in another country in which she immidiately brought up Africa. I expressed major interest in which one thing led to another and here we are today in the final preperation stages for a trip to Ghana. My father recently went to Rwanda, Africa and also had a remarkable experience that he said was "life changing". This has only increased my level of anticipation for the trip. Andrea found ProWorld organization who have done a fantastic job assisting Andrea and I with all aspects of the trip. I want to thank everyone who has supported me throughout this process. I hope that many will follow my journals as I experience Ghana's culture in November. I would like to thank God for opening my eyes to this opportunity and directing me to Andrea and ProWorld and Ghana.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways achnowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
