Greetings from LA!

Well, I wish I were dishing out greetings from LA, California. Though this might be almost as good....I'm currently here in Shreveport, Louisiana spending time with my mom's side of the family: the Shoemakers. Things are going very well and I should get some pictures up soon of that.
In other news, I have an official departure date!!! I wish the internet was emotion-capable because if it were, you would all be hearing squeels of joy. Nevertheless, I am very excited to be heading out on January 2nd. Yes, its a bit later than I had planned but I'm happy with God's timing and the fact that I have the holidays in Atlanta with my family. Who knows when that will happen again.
So I leave on the 2nd for Costa Rica-language school. I'll be back to Atlanta on April 26th for some last minute planning before heading off to Colombia mid-late summer of '08. Things are just speeding along. I'm looking forward to sharing the details with you as things unfold. Blessings and please keep in touch!
