Dorothy's in Kansas City!

Well everyone, I've made it so far.  Three hours on an airplane was quite the experience for me!  Especially considering the fact that I've never flown on one before.
I've taken some awesome pics of the trip so far.  I'll be getting a whole bunch of pics on here soon. As soon as I figure out how to get internet on 'Ubuntu', Linux.

If anyone's got tips, PLEASE lemme know!

Currently, I have met 3 of the leaders for this internship program.  They all live in a house that is a 2 minute walk away from mine.  There are going to be some of the other interns arriving tonight at around 8 or 9, (6 0r 7, BC time).  And tomorrow at around 2, (12:00, BC time), all of the other interns are going to be arriving, and we are going to have the official meeting then.  I've got a nice room, which I will be sharing with another girl starting tomorrow.

There are some people living at the leader's house that seem to have been here for quite a while.  They seem to be really 'Kansas City-ish'.  They've got all the slang and accents and stuff.  Anyway, continue to pray for my safety.  It's been pretty good so far, and the people are good (only the few I've met), but again, it's a inner city neighbourhood, so ya.  All the prayer is AWESOME!

Myles, Lindsay, and Megan are good leaders *so far* Myles is doing his best to get the inter's house all furnished and ready!  He's constantly on the phone making sure that everything's sorted out.

I'll keep you posted on what's up, and *hopefully* get my comp working!

As soon as my comp is up and running, I'll get a whole pile of pics on here!

First Step Down the Yellow Brick Road

Welcome to my blog!  I will be posting all the updates for this trip to Kansas City!

I am leaving on May 31st, which is just around the corner!  I really appreciate everyone's prayer and support as I go out on this trip.  I am trusting God and praying as much as possible right now, as I am excited, as well as nervous.  I have never been on a plane before, so this is going to be 'something else' for me!  :D

I am still looking to raise enough finances.  I still must raise $453.  That's 2/3 of the way there!  YAY!  Praise God for His provision!!  Thank you Jesus, and all of you who gave willingly.  God bless you, and I know He will!!  

I'll keep you posted, as I travel down this 'yellow brick road' into Kansas City!

I've posted a map below showing where Kansas City is.
