Dear friends and family,
Rest assured that I have made it here in one piece. Other than being a little worn out from the journey, I’m fine. More than fine actually. This is probably the most exciting thing that has happened to me all year. Yes, I know it’s only January 9th … but seeing in real life what I have only been imagining for more than 10 months now is like stepping outside and realizing for the first time that the sun is warm. And it feels oddly nice. Everything is bigger than the pictures in my head. More concrete and material. There is of course still a lingering scent of uncertainty hanging in the air. Yet, the reality of our arrival has lit a fragrant candle of propitious avidity.
We are here and ready to serve.
There is still of course a good deal of training that we still need to undergo. Nevertheless I am extremely thankful for the love and support I have received from you all. Please keep in touch via email, Facebook, and/or snail mail. I’ll try my best to update this blog whenever I can.
