This sparingly used blog is going to get a lot more love in these next few months.
Some of you know that I finished my coursework at Tulane for my Masters and moved home to re-take my MCAT and look for my final internship. The MCAT felt much better this time around: I felt more at peace, better prepared, and just more focused overall.
So my search for an internship (the last step needed to finish my masters) has ended, beautifully, I might add. I have to admit once I moved home I kept getting great e-mails about jobs/internships in New Orleans and I started to worry that maybe I should have stayed. But God had the right plan all along for me!
I am now heading into a busy last few weeks as I found out that I will be starting my first day of an internship in Johannesburg, South Africa on June 30th.
I will be working with World Vision International assisting the Senior Director for Global Health and HIV & AIDS Hope Initiative and her team down there for about 5.5 months until December 12th. This means I won’t get a summer until November or December, but I guess my time in New Orleans was warm enough to last me a while!
You might remember that I spent some glorious weeks in Cape Town, South Africa six years ago and loved it. I have always been looking for a route back to South Africa. But the timing has never been right until now.
I am so thankful for God leading me this far. When I went to South Africa last time I didn’t have any skills or training to offer, just a willing heart. But now I feel like I go back with my hands full of learning and experience. I am so blessed.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I prepare to leave for many months. I have to update my shots, get a driver’s license (yes, they want me to drive! ME!!!), and say goodbyes here!
