Two years ago at this time I was just beginning training. I began grad school in July of 2011, took 27 hours my first semester, took 12 more hours my next semester, TA-ed and took a class summer of 2012, continued classes fall of 2012, and I finished coursework and took comprehensive exams this spring (with a whole lot of other things in between). It’s been a journey but I have officially graduated with a master’s in applied linguistics.
Here are some photos to prove it.
Since I’ve been updating you all for the past two years concerning all of my classes, training, and life, I will not rehash everything here . (Although you can look through the archives if you’re out of the loop). But now I’ll tell you a little bit about my plans.
First, I’m planning on going on a trip to Mainland Southeast Asia (MSEA) this fall.
The purpose of this trip is so that I can see what life is like, see what projects are going on, and how I can help these projects/start new things as well as looking at where I could live, meeting people, making connections, etc. This is all because I am moving to MSEA sometime next summer.
So that means right now I am beginning partnership development. What is partnership development? Basically it is finding people who will partner with me, primarily through prayer and financially. So, this is where I ask you to let me know if you want to be apart of what God is doing in MSEA. I can let you know how you can .
So that’s the big picture. (Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from me ). And thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has loved and supported me the past couple years. I feel so blessed that I am able to do what I am doing and am going to do and am excited for what the future holds!
