Once I made my decision, I've been praying for a two things specifically...
- that God would soften the hearts (and minds) of the teachers and students I meet so that they may want to learn more about Jesus
- that God would give me the words to say so that I can be clear about my relationship with Jesus and why I love Him
- that I wouldn't experience (much) culture shock, or that when I do, I will be able to move through it quickly and easily
- that I wouldn't experience a lot of homesickness - especially toward the end of my trip. The last couple weeks have proven to be the hardest when it comes to missing family, friends, and the comforts of America
