So I'm in philly at staging.... there are 58 people in my group!! Yes large group!! Anyhow, this will be my last entry for a while.... we fly out tomorrow and end up in Joh-burg, then stay for a night, end up in Zambia on friday!!! Two days of orientation, then a five day site visit!! How cool is that?!?! Then its training, and we have a 14 day site visit in the middle of it all..... August 14th or 18th cant remember, is swearing in day.... that's when we become official PC Volunteers!!! Right now we're just trainees.... the paperwork has me delirious.... My sister pointed out to me that in my previous blog I said i'd leave behind my oreos... i meant to say that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCS will I leave my oreos behind!! Oh you better believe i took out lotion, deodorant, soap and shit like that to bring my oreos!!
Anyway ladies, gentlemen and others, I just wanted to post one more blog while I'm in the states just to let you know that if you don't hear from me, via blog, email or phone just know that I AM OK!!! No news is good news!!! This is it! START WRITING TO ME!!
Oh here are some mailing tips:
1: Write in red ink
2: Number your letters and packages (separately of course)
3: Write "air mail"
4: On packages, undervalue it (i have pay the taxes when i pick it up); write "used educational books" OR "biblical materials" AND write biblical quotes or say stuff like "May God be with you" Of course I want you to mean stuff like that, but it also helps to prevent hands from going inside the packages!!
5: Once I'm at my official address (the one I gave you all is valid only until mid August, so you have to write me at least once, so i can tell you my new addie, or you can get it from my mom) you can write "sister" before my name.....
LOVE YOU MOM!!
LOVE YOU (in decending order of age): Big Boog, Middle Boog, Wampoo, Wachupita, Frankie Baby, Gordo, Nana & Chris!!!
