Hello, dear Starlighters!

Okay, that nickname won’t work because it makes me think of Bryan Davis’ Starlighter series. But I really do want to find a name for you guys. Until I do, I’m sure you wouldn’t mind O-Most-Awesome-Readers-Who-Are-Above-All-Others, right? OMARWAAAO, yes?

Anyway. The super busy part of my summer is fast approaching, so I need to alert you guys before I disappear from the face of the blogosphere (temporarily, have no fear).

First off, this Monday I’m leaving on a missions trip to South Africa with a girl from my church. We’ll be shadowing a missionary family there, working in orphanages, and putting on VBSes for kids in rural areas. I’m so excited about this opportunity—I’ve always wanted to go on an overseas missions trip and see what it’s like to be a missionary day-to-day. Of course, I’m a little nervous, too, primarily about the travel (the trip there takes about forty hours. yikesters.), so I’d really appreciate prayer for safety and no complications. I’ll be back on the 21st, so you can expect some posts after that!

Then, the first week of August, my family and I are packing up and spending a few weeks visiting family, colleges, and the beach (I cannot tell you how much I’ve missed this). At the end of the month, we’re flying out to Germany. Yep, Germany. It’s my second time living there, although in a bit of a different situation, so I know what to expect and I’m super excited. I love Europe and traveling and adventure. I hope to post a few times during August, but I honestly have no idea how much free time I’ll have, so don’t expect too much. Hopefully, once we arrive in Germany, I’ll be able to get back into a normal schedule.

So, in summary: I’ll be on periodically for the rest of the summer, mostly with updates and musings about what’s been going on. I’m going to miss all of you so much, but I’ll be stalking your posts and connecting with you when I can. Stick around! 

One more thing: I’m on Pinterest! I’ve had lots of fun exploring it and pinning stuff (man, you can waste so much time on there. I’m trying to avoid that.). My name is River City Girl. Let me know what yours are in the comments so I can follow you!

Happy early 4th of July, everyone! I hope you have a great rest of the summer. Thank you all for being such fun, loyal, and inspiring readers. You truly are most awesome and the best.

  2. Ahh, that is so exciting! My mom is actually from South Africa, so I’ve been there a couple of times. Hope everything goes well!


  3. Sounds exciting! I’ll be praying for both your missions trip and your move. (Also, I’m sort of jealous . . . I think I would’ve much rather gone to Germany than New York, even if it would’ve meant being even further from friends and such. And my two years of TPS German would’ve actually been useful for something.)
