So there are seasons here. Not so drastic as temperate Oregon, but it has cooled off some (more days are in the 80s than 90s), and in the evenings it even gets down to high 70s. It's been raining a bit more than it has before, which still only means for a few minutes or day. The fun part is that it is monsoon-type rain that really comes pouring down, and since we live in an old tin-roofed building with open windows (just screens), we feel like we are right in the midst of it. Hearing the waves pounding outside and the rain clanking on the roof is something I'll definitely miss. I snapped a couple pictures of rain this past week that was happening in the distance but not over us: the sky is gorgeous even when it's stormy and these pictures are exactly what it looked like (as in, these aren't edited. Let's get real.. very few of my photos are edited--I'm too lazy for that!!).
While the rain makes me feel closer to home, other experiences/behaviors/goings-on are so drastically different than the Jenna who left home 3 months ago. Example:
Another week of research and report writing and then next Thursday we are headed home! It is crazy to think we are getting to our "lasts".. last dive, last snorkel, last weekend... These are met with both excitement and nostalgia though, as I am looking very forward to my own bed and bug-less Oregon home filled with my awesome family!!
I'm a twenty-something from the Pacific NW making home in new places as I follow where God leads.
My intent is to show Christ's love to the world and use business to solve some of the social problems we face: hunger, illiteracy, healthcare, economic hardship. For now, I'm in a stage of learning. A little adventuring, a few books, some good friends, and a whole lot of prayer and life runs on.
