While standing in line for Customs, I met two people who were fluent in several languages. One girl from Armenia could speak six languages! This left me feeling inspired and dejected at the same time. The language barrier for us is much much greater here than it was in Argentina.
I have no background in Russian, and it took time to even learn the new Cyrillic alphabet. It is so frustrating not to be able to communicate a single thing--how grateful we are to be in this beautiful, freezing, rainy country that has amazing food, interesting people and an amazing history.
This got me thinking about my future.
- What do I want to do with my life?
- What is worthy of dedication?
- Should I have studied something else, somewhere else?
This trip has been the most intense, vast, expedited learning experience I have ever had.
I am living culture.
I pray that God would continue to speak to my heart what He has for my life, and specifically my occupation after college.
I desire to find the peace that comes from knowing I am in the perfect place.
I am just where God wants me.
I am in Vladimir, Russia, but I am home with Christ and my new friends that are participating in this University homeschool Around the World..
