Jen and I dropped Jody off at the Corpus Christi Airport on Monday Jan 7th for her 6 AM flight to Philadelphia where she joined 34 other Peace Corps Volunteers for registration at 1:30 pm. They spent the afternoon in training . They completed the staging process the afternoon of Tuesday Jan 8th. Wednesday morning they reported to the clinic , checked out of the hotel and boarded buses for the airport for their 7 pm departure to Charles De Gaulle airport, Paris, where they boarded a connecting flight to Niamey, Niger on Jan 10th. This group of 34 volunteers will then complete a 3 month in country training.

We wish you safe travels and good luck on this Great Adventure.
Love ya. Mom

I am trying to imagine what it must be like for you to leave everything you have ever known and to journey into new realms. I'll never know what you feel exactly, but I can tell that you have a strong spirit. Although you are there to share your knowledge with others, don't forget to soak in a little in return. God bless and godspeed!
