my heart is beating fast.

Every once in a while things just fall into place so perfectly that there is no other way to explain it except that there is someone bigger out there – someone who has your path all planned out for you. (for the record I am so thankful for that person and the things he is doing right now.)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         This past February I made this layout and this past week I was offered a spot on a team that is going to India next summer. I of course, accepted!!

Ever since I first saw pictures of it I have been in love with the country and longed to see it for myself. I am beyond thrilled that this time next year I will have been to India. The team is going for at least three weeks, with the possibility of staying for up to 8 weeks depending on funds etc. While we are there we will be working with a variety of organizations doing health care and increasing awareness about global health as well as some sight seeing (eeee!).

I am still kind of shocked about the whole thing and am so so thankful for this opportunity. The next year is going to be tough. Busy planning our trip as well as trying to raise funds for the trip as well as figuring out how I am going to make ends meet during my last year of school (since I will have at least one, and potentially two months next summer when I am not working). Despite the work that it will be in planning the trip and the following year – the risks far, far outweigh the other factors.

I will keep you regularly updated. On the 13 of November I will find out more about the trip at our first official planning/information session. I want to thank all of you who sent up little prayers when I asked for them over the past couple of weeks – I truly believe in the power of a prayer or a positive thought and therefore of the fact that all of you had an instrumental part in my being a part of this trip. So thank you for that.

xoxo, your very excited friend,

jeremy.
