Wasn't sure I was really going to reach this point. Not until this morning was I cleared of a medical hold! That's cutting it close, since my plane leaves Monday morning for the staging area. But all is well, for now! Now the job is to pack, and make sure that my luggage meets the weight and size restrictions. That is going to take some thoughtful calculation. Hopefully, I won't have to leave anything significant behind.
I've been told that Internet service may not be available during the first 2 months of training in Kenya. So be patient if you don't see any new posts for awhile. I'll post my address once I am sure where I will be. Those students of Ma'am following this post are encouraged to leave comments and questions. I'll answer them as Internet availability permits.
