Good News at a Bad Time

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.  


  1. How exciting and sad at the same time. I'll be praying for a safe journey home and quality time with the family. Hugs!

  2. Safe travels Emily! What a blessing for you and your family that you are able to come to be together at this time. Peace be with you!

  3. Safe travels Emily and congratulations on serving a second year. I will keep you in my prayers during this time of transition and processing the passing of your grandmother.

    Peace and love,
