In about 24 hours I'll be boarding a flight to LA to meet up with all my TFP (teaching fellowship program) friends and fly to Beijing! Everyone keeps asking, "Are you nervous?" The answer would be yes, I'm pretty nervous. Mostly about leaving my family. I will be in China for 1 year teaching English to elementary students. I'm very excited about this adventure, and most importantly, being where the Father wants me. It took me a while to get here but there's no stopping it now!
The most common thing people say to me when they hear I'm going to China is, "Maybe you'll meet a Chinese man and never come back!" Let me take a moment to reassure you all that this will not be happening. I know everyone says "never say never," but seriously.... never.
I'm not the greatest writer, so don't expect to read lots of witty stories on my blog... but so many people have asked me to do this so they can keep up with me, or as Mrs. Susan said, "just make sure you're alive." :)
Thank you all for your thoughts and support!
