Testing… 1, 2, 3…
If you would have told me a year ago that I would be blogging about my experience on an international medical rotation, I would have called you cray-cray. Secretly, I would be hoping you were right about the international adventure part…but the blogging…naaahhh!
But here I am, five days from my departure, setting up a blog.
Stranger things have happened.
My hope is that with this blog, my family and friends can share along with me- in (semi)real time- my experiences of medicine in a developing country. This trip has been a long time in the making, and by the graces of God everything has fallen into place. Many prayers have been answered and many prayers are still being said.
This trip is a medical rotation, where I hope to add a few brain wrinkles by the end of the 5 weeks. It also serves a greater purpose. I have been given this unique opportunity to grow in my faith and in my concept of self. I look forward to the meaningful conversations shared. I plan to pick the brains of the Kubacki family (my hosts and the village doc), discovering how they listened and obeyed the call for medical mission work. I am excited to embrace a new culture, learn a few new dance moves and see the stars without light pollution.
I am ready to blur the lines of my comfort zone.
Am I packed? Nope.
Is Toto’s song “Africa” playing on repeat in my head? Yes. Am I embarrassed? Not really.
