Hey Steph! I totally understand! I have been supper busy myself, being in a different country adds a whole other aspect to that I'm sure. I am still planning to go in Cote d'Ivoire in the fall. God is just doing so much in my life in prep too :) I am sure I will have a ton of questions as I go, I appreciate you! I have really enjoyed your blog also. God is so good and you do a wonderful job of pointing that out! Blessings!
Hi Stephanie, just to let you know. We have an art classroom here on campus with paper, some older acrylic paint, brushes etc. The class room would need to be cleaned up and the material all needs to get organized. But it would be available for you to use.
glad to see you've got a fully team of supporters on board. We're looking forward to having you (and the rest of this fall's Journeyers) joining us out here soon. Any questions we can cover before you arrive (packing, preparation recommendations, etc)?

What do you think your next steps are toward missions? We could use someone to help us with our Compassion Track. We have a Partner we are working with that needs help with Art Therapy for young ladies that were rescued from slave prostitution. Is that something you might be interested in helping us with?
It was great seeing you at Urbana. If you have any questions, hit me up. I am working with Journey Corps in Denver, then heading to help lead it in Ivory Coast soon!
Remember our deadline for starting the application is Feb 15th. Go to the "Start your Journey" section and get started if you are at all interested in joining us next fall in Africa! One of our coaches will contact as soon as you do that and walk with you on your journey...
