It all started when ... I felt the call to serve as a missionary a few years back, but I made a number of excuses (money, time, safety, etc). One day I just felt like I had to there was no more time to wait so I went online and signed up.
I enjoyed getting to know ... Everyone on the team and the people in the community, especially the kids.
Things that challenged and changed me ... Getting to see how the community lived everyday. I didn't realize how much I really did take for granted. Things are so hard for them, simple acts like washing their hands becomes complicated because they have no running water.
I will never forget ... Adayra, she was the most incredible kid I've ever met.
