Journey to Ethiopia | One Week Out

Oh my goodness, guys. In just ONE week, I will be hopping on a plane to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for a media mission trip with The Archibald Project, and I can’t even believe it! Between fundraising, vaccination appointments, and personal prep, I feel as if I have been anticipating this trip for such a long time can’t even believe that my team’s departure date is just 7 days away. As you can imagine, my emotions are pretty much going crazy. I’m all kinds of excited…all kinds of nervous…but mostly I feel loved. By my amazing community that gave of personal funds and kind words to help make this dream of mine a reality. I don’t think I will ever have the words to tell you just how much this means to me, but it truly is so comforting to know that my entire team and I have such an amazing community that believes in the work that we are doing. With my entire heart, thank you.

If you are curious about what I will be doing while overseas, here is a little rundown. First, and most importantly, I am not moving to Africa! While that would be an amazing experience, my team is going to be working on the ground for just over a week. {DC crew…get ready for some amazing projects that are in the works for when I get home.}

Our team will be staying in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and we will be working with the amazing Selamta Family Project. I could say a million and one amazing things about their mission and work, but I believe this video sums it up better than I ever could:

While I am in country, I will be unplugging completely from email {Don’t worry…I have an amazing friend on standby, in case of any emergencies!}. I am hoping to be able to post on my blog or Instagram as much as possible, Internet permitting. I am so excited to share this journey with you, and truly can’t believe we leave so soon! With all that being said, I am looking forward to answering any questions that you may have about my trip, so, if anything has been on your mind, please feel free to leave a comment below or send me an email at!
