As we leave for Chad in just a couple short months, I have started to look back on the year we spent in France. It was honestly, easily the worst year of my life and about 100 times harder than I expected. Even though the year was hard I learned a lot. I learned about language, different cultures, traveling, learning techniques, and even myself. This entire experience has really drawn me closer to God. Sometimes I question why we are here and why it is so hard to be here. But I know I have to keep holding on because this is God’s plan for me. Even though He has put me in a very hard position, I love what He has blessed me with. I have had so many new experiences that I never thought could happen. I love traveling and exploring new things and getting into whatever I can get my hands on. I never really knew what was out in the world.
