For those of you who do not know my long term plan you can read this, this and this post.
I found a birthing clinic in Texas just across the boarder from Mexico that has a short term program for people like me. It is one of the schools that I looked at before I applied to Newlife. I will be there 4 weeks Jan-Feb, probably staying with one of the students.
After that, I am on to the Philippines. Papa talked with a man at the Shindig who is doing a lot of evangelism work in the Philippines. I will be staying with his wife's niece and helping with their children and mission work for about 4-6 weeks. I also hope to visit Newlife for a week or two while I am there and apply to the school again for Aug. 2015.
I should be home in April. I'll try to work a few months as these trips do take a chunk out of my savings for school and then off again for 2 1/2 years in Aug. I hope to do some sort of fundraiser here in Nov.-Dec. I'll keep you posted.
