The fact this was almost exactly three years ago is absolutely mind boggling to me right now. I wish the “mind blown” emoji did what I am feeling justice, but it does not.
We spent ten days in the middle of Georgia (in July) drenched in sweat and covered in red dirt, eating weeeird food, learning different cultures, sleeping in weeeird places, worshipping together, and doing hilarious team/squad bonding activities. We walked into camp having only interacted via social media & when we left camp we were family. Family that was about to spend eleven months traveling the world together in 24/7 community.
What blows my mind even more is that in exactly SIX MONTHS, down to the day, I will be back in Georgia at Adventures in Missions to start the next chapter of my life. I never planned or wanted the mission field to be how I spent my life. But God always knew I would end up back at the same place that began to turn my world upside down.
