My flight leaves tomorrow afternoon! Since I won't be settled for the first few days, you can check out the Rock Harbor team blog to make sure I've made it okay (I'm traveling with the December team).

Anyway, it's time to finish packing!

Gulu, part 2.

Hello friends!

As some of you know, last January, I had the incredible opportunity to go to Gulu, Uganda on a medical mission trip with Rock Harbor. It was the most amazing experience of my entire life, by far. Ever since I returned home, I have been desperate to go back to Gulu. I definitely left a piece of my heart there. A few weeks ago, I found out that I was accepted into a program with an NGO called Favor of God. I will be going back to Gulu for a few months! As thrilled as I am, the reality of finances has been on my mind. In order to get myself some money, I am selling purses that I sew. Here are some pictures:

If you or someone you know is interested in buying a bag, email me at and put PURSE in the subject line. All purses are $20. Many of these purses have already been sold, but I will post pictures of more as I make them. Tell your friends! :)
