Hello Ghana.

Tuesday, January 20, 2009





The time has come: it's official. I AM GOING TO GHANA! I have just received word tonight that I made it into UVU's Ghana Study Abroad Program where we will be working in orphanages and teaching the kids prevention against AIDS.  I cannot begin to explain how excited and thankful and blown away I am! This is something that I haven't wanted for so long and I have tried through  many different programs and I am finally going! I cannot wait to meet these kids! I have such a strong love for these people in Africa and I cannot wait to see them face to face. It will truly be a life changing experience. I have never felt so blessed..... 




 BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

We're Going to Roam Ghana!

Wow Rachel, that is SO EXCITING! I too wanted to go to Africa before the Young Crew hit a population explosion :) but never had the opportunity. So have fun, make memories and don't take a moment for granted because I'm sure you'll remember this experience for the rest of your life!
