1-15-09

Everything is hard right now except going to sleep. I know that sounds bleak, but I'm weak with homesickness (yes, already). I'm trying to find ways to call home; you'd think it wouldn't be that hard in a country so similar to our own in almost every way. Everybody here is so nice, the country is so beautiful. I'm praying desperately to snap out of it and see this opportunity for what it really is: remarkable. Unmistakeably the chance of a lifetime. Even just not that bad.

Six months is a long time, but you may never get to goback to Australia -- truth from my dad.

"The future doesn't lie ahead waiting to happen. It lies within you waiting to be discovered." - a quote Courtney gave me.

"This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24

So, please pray. I know this is just an adjustment phase, but it's hard to remind myself that not all of the 6 months will be more sad than happy. Love y'all.
