Well, the first day of class has officially begun. Dr. John O’Keefe got us started (at 9:00 sharp!) with an abridged presentation on the history of the church. We then got our mugshots taken for our profiles. Now that reading has been assigned and I’ve fulfilled my free hugs quota (I am wearing a “free hugs” t-shirt today.) I am faced with the daunting task of explaining my motivations for deciding to go on this trip.
As you read in my profile (You did read that, right?) I am a lover of adventures. However, this trip means more to me than just another adventure. Not only is it immensely more epic than my usual “adventures” but it is also a great opportunity for personal growth and to do something that I am extremely passionate about; tell someones story. I am excited to learn and to teach.
