BENEFITING: PACIFIC UNION COLLEGE
EVENT DATE: Sep 01, 2013
This is the second page I've made on Crowdrise. I deleted the first one. That's because a month or so ago, I thought I was going to Spain. Or Argentina. Or China. Those were my top three choices. Then God did what He always does and surprised me with His version of the future. When my first three options fell through, I altered my mindset, and that's when I found Kazakhstan. A country so large, yet, as one author points out, is a "land that disappeared." Why does hardly anyone seem to know anything about this country? I myself had to look it up on the map. Places and people whose stories are a mystery to much of the world intrigue me, so I applied to Kazakhstan, and, lo and behold, God decided that teaching English and helping ADRA (Adventist Development and Relief Agency) in the city of Almaty, KZ, was just where He wanted me. So from September 2013 to July 2014, that's where I'll be.
