And the winner is...

BULGARIA!

(It's okay, I had to get out my map too. It's the teal-ish country toward the bottom right. Directly above Greece and Turkey.)



In May I'll head out to Bulgaria to spend the next 27 months working and serving. I'm so excited! Obviously I was shocked when I opened up the letter and saw "Bulgaria" and not some country in Africa. For some reason I'd just expected that but I'm pumped nonetheless. From the beginning of this journey I've been trying to go in God's direction so I have absolutely no doubt that this is where I should be going!

Even crazier, there's a girl from ACU who was a year behind me and already in Bulgaria for PC. She's been there since the summer. I didn't know her there but thanks to facebook, I've already started messaging her.

The next five and a half months will definitely be a journey. I mean, seriously, has anyone ever seen the Bulgarian language?!? YIKES.

I look forward to learning Bulgarian with you! At least recognizing some of the letters. that way I can be a confident tourist on my visits. And that's a cool map you drew!
