tomorrow means romania.

"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore."

-Andre Gide

this quote is engraved onto the journal that my uncle and his girl friend, courtney, gave me. i love it because it completely applies to how i feel right now. romania is a huge, new ocean for me and this trip is taking all of the courage that i have. 

i could pray for a multitude of things right now but i don't quite have the words, nor do i have much emotion. i think i'll remain numb until i hear the name "romania" come over the airplane intercom. 

in three short weeks i will be making my way back home, so it's crucial for me to throw myself into everything that awaits me. i think it's safe to say that my first overseas endeavor is bound to be a memorable one.

and i'm seeing that complete physical and mental obedience to god is a humbling thing.
i don't know what to expect or how to feel or anything. 

all i know is that my life of adventures begins's crazy scary and overwhelming, but i'm not one to just sit around comfortable, watching the world spin by.

be back soon.
