September 15th was a bitter sweet day for me. On one hand, excitement, as the school we'd been preparing to start since January had its first official day of class.
On the other hand sadness, as the 15th was my last official day in Nigeria. As I said my goodbyes and got on the plane I couldn't help but reflect on how much God had done over the past year and a half.
Arriving back in Austin I was greeted at the airport by my mom, stepdad, and a few friends. After some much needed sushi mom dropped me off at my dad's where I surprised my little sister for her birthday. She had been under the impression I wasn't coming home until next month. The family reunion as a whole was something I had dreamt about for months!
While I am not exactly sure what the next chapter of life looks like, I am certain of one thing; my time in Africa will forever change they way I live and appreciate life as we know it.
To all those who supported me along the way that I haven't got to tell in person yet...THANK YOU and God bless!
