Preparing to leave...

Welcome to my blog! I appreciate your visit.

On August 7th, I will leave for Tanzania to work for the Tanganyikan Christian Refugee Service, or TCRS (, for a year. I will be in the western part of the country in a small town called Kibondo.

I plan to primarily use this space to share pictures from my adventure. It should become a photo-journal of sorts. Email will be used to give more detailed updates and reflections on my experiences. If you would like to receive these periodic emails about my time in Tanzania, please let me know via email. My address is

Pictures will soon follow my arrival in the capital of Tanzania, Dar es Salaam. Until then, enjoy these photos taken from the front porch of my parent's home in Virginia. Please keep myself and my family in your prayers!
