I couldn't be more excited to be able to go and spread the knowledge and love of Christ throughout the African continent. There is no where else I would want to be, and nothing else I would want to be doing for the next two years.
I like to think that I know exactly what I am getting myself into. I have been doing as much research as possible, however, I know that there are few real ways to prepare to live so far away from what I have known for the entirety of my life, but I know that there have been many who have gone before me with much harsher circumstances and they were protected and successful.
I can't wait to make some amazing memories, and to meet some amazing families in Africa, and I hope that I will be able to make the most of my time there to positively affect both myself and others.
I will try to keep this blog going, however, I can't give any guarantees.
I encourage you, if you do not know much about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to contact missionaries in your area at www.mormon.org/missionaries
Keep me in your prayers, Ebola is no joke.
