Get your head in the game...
The past week and a half has been very busy, but everything that we are doing is helping us to prepare for the adventure ahead. Some of the things we've been able to do include classes about warfare (the spiritual kind), meetings with our region leaders, fun learning activities such as haircutting, watching "High School Musical 2" with all the kids and a party at our orientation director's home. Many of us have chosen to use two Saturdays to get our ESL/EFL teaching certificates and will finish that up this Saturday with an all-day workshop. Sunday night we had our first cultural night, and my region-South Asia-was the focus. The picture is of several of us dressed in some of our cultural clothes.
Yesterday was the very first shot day (eek!). I had five, yes five, shots and will have even more on the other two clinic days. But, it's not too bad. I got Hello Kitty bandaids.
Finally, we had our first "Special Meal" today. It was of the Middle Eastern culinary style. It was quite tasty, and we had to work really hard not to use our left hands!
Needless to say, we've been going non-stop. But, His glory is still our only aim.
