I have arrived in the Cleveland area for a week of orientation before I take off for Johannesburg on Saturday. I am staying with a host family with 4 children: Jack-18 Anna-15 Eliza-12 and Mira-9 I am staying in Jack's room while he is out of town for the week so it is basically me and 3 girls (why cant I ever have a brother?) They are a very nice family and live about 40 minutes outside of Cleveland, but only 15 minutes away from the Ambassadors in Sport office. I will be starting my orientation tomorrow and am looking forward to meeting the staff and also learning more about specifics about my time in South Africa. Coming off of a fun-filled wedding weekend in northern Michigan with my college friends and girlfriend, my emotions are all over the place. It was basically the last time that I will see my girlfriend in 2010 so it was very difficult to say goodbye to her and also my friends. Please pray for me during this first transition of my trip to South Africa.
