I’ll be honest, the World Vision Trip has just kind of snuck up on me. The realization is just now starting to sink in that Hannah and I will be in the Dominican Republic in just a few days. I’m nervous and excited.
Nervous on how I’m going to share this experience with you because this blog isn’t really about my feelings and personal experience. Am I ready to open up that much in this public space? Nervous about how I will be affected by the trip. Will it change me? Will I just go about my normal life? Does what I do even make a difference? Right now, I just don’t know.
Excited because I’ve sponsored a child through World Vision for many years after watching my own mom sponsor a child while I was growing up. I’m excited because I do get to meet one of our sponsored children, Angela who is six years old. I am a little sad we will not be able to meet our other child we sponsor from the Dominican Republic, Luis (11), who shares my love of beans!
I feel so blessed to be asked to be part of this group. To be able to bring awareness to a cause I truly believe in is a highlight of my blogging “career.”
So what can you expect next week? I have plenty of deals/giveaways/bargain posts that will be scheduled and posted throughout the week. I will have a sticky post at the top of my blog which will have the latest World Vision Trip posts for easy access to those posts.
