I often find myself wondering how did I end up here? This is the story of my journey to Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa and beyond.

Orientation in Baltimore
For those of you just tuning in, I am in Baltimore, MD. I am here for an orientation with the Notre Dame Mission Volunteers. I am one of the six Notre Dame Mission Volunteers serving overseas. I leave for Enugu, Nigeria in fifteen days. So what you may ask will I be doing in Nigeria? I will be living with the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and working at an elementary school in Awkunanaw. There will probably be other projects but the truth is that right now I don't know a whole lot about what it will be like. I just hope to go into this coming year with an open heart and an open mind.
