The short version: I’m moving to Africa.
The long version: After much thought, prayer, and anticipation, I sent in my application to serve long-term with New Hope Uganda. And recently, things became official! I will be joining the staff at Kasana Children’s Centre as an art teacher in the primary school. I have made an initial 2.5 year commitment. There’s a brief summary posted under FAQ.
So, what next?
I have a long way to go in terms of fundraising, and the clock is already ticking (I’ll post my official departure dates as soon as those are finalized, but know that they’re not terribly far off!). Please pray for me as I begin making preparations and raising funds!
I’ve already posted basic donation information on the new Support Beth page of this blog, and I’ll be posting more details shortly. For now, know that I am absolutely thrilled to begin this new phase of life, and I look forward to including all of you in the adventure!
