Then on February 16th, I got a voice mail saying, "We are all set. You have been approved and you are ready to move forward." I got goosebumps and began to cry with joy!
After I heard this news, a lot of emotions and thoughts were running through my mind. I knew God was leading me to not only benefit the children of Jamaica, but myself as well. Sign language has always been a huge interest of mine, but at this point it was going to have to become a language I felt fully confident in. I knew I was going to be away from family and friends for about three months. My family is everything to me so I know this will be hard, but the most important thing is God is calling me to do this. I am being called to go use my gifts for the glory of God.
