Dear East Point YAC,
Although you may not be directly related to Bhutan, I need to make a brief shout out to all of you! This past summer had the potential to be really rough. My family had just moved to Maine and I’d be home for 2+ months in a state where I know almost no one.
Then along came YAC... I want you to know that you truly made my summer and I am so thankful for you. I can’t fully describe how much I appreciate the fellowship you provided, fantastic discussions, and lots of laughs.
On top of all that, I finally got to read the wonderful notes that many of you wrote in my book (plus Janaye’s picture... which was epic!). Thank you so much for all the encouraging words. When I feel homesick or stressed, I like to open up that book and feel all the great vibes coming from you. And, thank you to those who are praying for me and my group as we continue this adventure. It means a lot to me.
So, to finish up, I hope you are having a great end to your summer. Sometime in the fall I am hoping to wake up early enough to skype into a YAC but I’m not sure about the logistics! Also, keep an eye on my facebook photos... I am determined to get a picture with a real live yak while I am here. So far I have bought a yak hair bag and eaten at “Yak Herders Camp,” but haven’t come across a yak itself!
I love you all! God Bless,
