Arraijan, Panama

Map NERVOUS,
ANXIOUS,
EXCITED!

That pretty much describes how I am feeling today. I fly to Arraijan, Panama tomorrow afternoon for my first Medical Mission trip.  I have been assigned to work as an assistant to the Optometrist.  I have spent some time this week going over and re-going over all of my paperwork and also gathering things and packing. I am only able to take one checked bag and one carry-on.  It is a challenge to pack so few things.  I am doing my best to take only what I need.  I am really looking forward to working next week to better the lives of others.  I anticipate that I will have a different perspective on things upon my return. 

I decided it was best to only take a disposable camera or two instead of my good digital.  I hope to share some photos when I return after the 30th.

I hope everyone has a blessed day!
