I had recently made a comment to someone how when something doesn’t seem to go your way in life, a turn of unexpected events happens… you should yell out “plot twist!”… little did I know I would soon be shouting this out for myself. It’s been a long while since I last updated this blog. There have been a few things going on since then that I couldn’t share… until now. Within the past 6-8 months I had been going through the long process of waiting to see if I would receive an invitation to serve with the Peace Corps. On January 9, 2014 I got an answer and an invitation to serve in Moldova! Honestly, I had to learn where it was located.
Moldova is located in Eastern Europe, between Ukraine and Romania. It’s about the size of Maryland and has around 3,559,500 residents living in the country (according to Wikipedia). What is it like in Moldova? You can get a little glimpse of it here:
This certainly wasn’t on my radar a year ago at this time, I’m in awe of what can happen in a year and how much can change. And here I am, preparing to leave for at least 2 years (27 months) to be stretched and challenged in ways that I cannot even imagine. I’ll be moving/departing June 2, 2014 and I hope to be sharing some of the adventures along the way through this blog.
(On a side note, I found it ironic that the last time I updated this blog was on June 2 – also my current departure date for the Peace Corps.)
