Todays St. Patricks Day crew. @blu3ca1 with Liz and Noel who travelled down from Co. Tyrone. 
Not many people can say they passed under a St. Patricks Day Parade. The sun was splitting the trees, but the wind!!!! The 4km up the river was an effort to say the least. Worth every second. .

Joy Peebles - thank you for letting me plan and coordinate our vacation in Peru. You truly know my type A wanderlust heart well enough to let me run wild with the details of our time abroad. And you must love me a lot to let me drag you all around another continent with me. Let’s keep traveling the world together, ok?

Llama it like it is, I’m completely obsessed with this beautiful South American animal. Getting to hold a llama for the first time was a dream come true as you can see from my literal squeal when holding my new furry friend. But best of all is my new amigita Rut pictured behind me. We became fast friends in the Cusco Plaza de Armas day one and she was so excited every time we ran into each other this week. Never a dull moment in Cusco!

Truly in awe of the unbelievable opportunities my job has given me - like going to the Galapagos!! Ecuador is absolutely gorgeous and has blown my mind these past two weeks. But as much as I love seeing new places and visiting countless countries, it’s the people and relationships that make this job so rewarding. Traveling has helped me to fully discover who I am as an individual and build confidence in dreaming bigger for my future. Sharing those same moments with students on a daily basis is more rewarding than I could ever describe. If I can look back and say that even one student left my office feeling more empowered to chase their dreams and take a bold risk in international travel, then I can say I’ve succeeded at my job.

Absolutely loved the jungle of Ecuador. Nothing like getting away from it all and getting up close with nature and Gods creation. // I think I could get used to this new mode of transportation too! 🛶✨

I spend a typical week on campus at an American university. But this past week was special because I got to do that from a Ugandan university. During my time in Mukono I visited various clinics, schools, and social work initiatives to learn about how local Ugandans are creating change for their communities. It is so inspiring to see how people step up and work hard when they believe a change can happen. We need to work hard for the difference we want to see.

U-ganda-be kidding me with these views. People watching in Mukono quickly became a favorite. 🙌🏻 Hardly any wifi all week and I wasn’t complaining. We all need to unplug sometimes, right?

Lion King behind the scenes action today // On my Masai Mara safari I got to see every wild animal imaginable - including crows and hyaenas feasting on a carcass. I even got to watch the Wildebeest on their migration south towards the Serengeti. I think I’m officially ruined for any zoos moving forward.

Can someone say dream team? What an incredible honor to work alongside such passionate, creative, and intellectual minds. It’s truly an inspiration to be surrounded by such life-giving colleagues. Wouldn’t trade this past month in Israel with this team for anything. Appreciate them all beyond measure.

There aren’t words for how much I love Israel. Absolutely one of my favorite countries.

Capernaum is honestly one of my favorite places in Israel. Reflecting on what my life has looked like each time I’ve sat here by the water, I’m constantly amazed by all the Lord has done in my life. I’m so undeserving and yet he chooses to bless me so much. // Sitting by the shore this week I prayed a quick little prayer that I’ve honestly prayed more times than I count. Within one hour, the Lord confirmed his promise again. It’s crazy how we can doubt so often, but he continually reaffirms us in the plans he has. In Israel or back home, God is so good. He is constant and never wavering.

One my most favorite places in Israel is Capernaum, where Jesus first called out so many of his disciples to follow him. It always brings me to a place of remembrance in what it means to follow Christ and to actually live my life in a manner that best pleases him. I love this spot on the Galilee. 💕
