Because this step of faith, brings me closer to humanity
Got our essentials from Daiso!!!
I love grocery shopping!
For those who have been following my blog or tweets, you'll probably know I'm part of Project Sunshine, a SMU school overseas comm service project (OCSP) initiative to Laos! Gonna be a villager for 2.5weeks, wish us all, all the best! I'm actually quite excited through I feel super duper unprepared! :/ Just gonna take it all with an open heart & mind!
Yeah, time flies... After about 2months or so of preparations (planning & sleepover cum summer bonding sessions amongst the 22 of us + fund raising activities), we'll finally flying off today!
This step of faith and courage is probably one that I'll remember for the rest of my life. It's my 1st full-fledge OCSP trip & I really am stepping out of my comfort zone. Well, that's one of the things I wanted to experience when I enrolled myself in University. Like what I've always said, my aim of coming to a local uni is to experience all the overseas trips possible, because these are things that you can only have the chance to do during your uni days.
As my team & I set out on a journey to the village of Laos, I hope to be the sunshine in the kids' life and hopefully impact them, be a great joy and blessing to them. They say in OCSPs, a lot of times, it's not what you give them but more like what they give to me when I leave - all the memories and things I've learnt from them. Really can't wait to meet the kids!
No internet for the next few weeks till I reach Bangkok! A good getaway from Social Media! What a challenge yet a personal breakthrough for a social media addict like myself! Challenging! But I believe I can survive! May god bless my team and I, that we can be a great blessing and impact to the kids over there!
Can't wait to immerse myself in the innocence of the kids!
Back on Christmas eve, so till then, Toodles!
