What have I learned about myself so far? Well to my surprise I've learned a lot of things this past few months. This mission trip means a lot to me, to many of my peers, and most definitely to the wonderful people in Chajul.
I've learned that I am very nervous about this trip: I think I am nervous because this is my first time out of the US. I will not have my mother or grandparents by my side, and this will feel awkward at first, but I know I am going on this trip with amazing people. I have also learned how curious I am about entering a new culture. I hope we can bring something meaningful to Guatemala, but also discover what we will receive in return.
