I was able to see and talk with the missionaries from Guatemala, Norm and Vickie, and will be meeting with them several times before they head back to Guatemala in a month. We will discuss the lesson plans for teaching English, and what all I need to bring for that. There is so much to do to prepare. I will be mailing out my letters to people for support within the next couple weeks. Hopefully many will be interested in my story and want to hear more. I am meeting with someone who is investing in me as a spiritual mentor to help me in preparation for my travels, and also for life.
I am nervous about meeting expectations at each place, and being able to accomplish the work I'm setting out to do. However, I'm only setting myself up for failure with this attitude. It's my own bar that I have set for myself that I am trying to conquer. There is no way I will be able to do this, I just need to realize it. Hopefully I will be motivated to do what I need to do to prepare and yet realize that I can only do what I can do. I will touch people while I'm away, whether in my way or His.
