cotonou

though i'm giving myself just a few more days to think and pray about it, i've pretty much come to a peaceful decision to move to benin west africa this summer. i will be living (for 2 years?) in the coastal city of cotonou, pictured here. i have more pics i'll post later. if you have any thoughts on my decision, speak now or forever hold your peace.

That's great news, Lauren! Am so happy for you. Will definitely try to drop by and visit you at some point. It will be a life-changing experience for you!

Go for it. Which position is it?

actually... the more i heard about their leadership development program, the more i started leaning that direction. i'm going to talk to josua (will be my boss there) about the different programs and see where i fit best. i may do some grant writing too. for the first few weeks i'm just going to get comfortable with my french and the people and the ministry, and then go from there!
