Because of the unforeseen circumstance of my grandmother’s passing, this announcement has been expedited and is happening a little differently than I would have liked. But oh well I guess that is how life goes, and while this isn’t the best time, it is still good news.
I have been asked and have agreed to extend my time in Liverpool for a second year. I am extremely excited about this and about continuing the work that I have been doing. What this also means is that I will be returning home for a few weeks. This time is meant for vacation but also to raise money for my second year. Originally the plan was that I would come home in July, but with my grandmother’s funeral being this next Tuesday, it makes sense for everyone, if I take my ‘time home’ at the same time.
So what does this mean. Well I am happy that my time has been extended, happy that I get some time at home, nervous about fundraising again, and sad about the circumstances that have caused this process to be topsy turvy.
On a side note, I am sorry that I have not published a post in so long. Expect more to come in the next week, I’ll have lots of time when I am on the plane home.
Until then: prayers are appreciated, messages and emails are always welcome, and I look forward to seeing everyone when I get home.
