Shot before our time, but a great overview of the TEFL Project’s role here in Peace Corps Nicaragua.
With a Spanish version of “Fight Song” as our anthem, workshops about sharing power in relationships, goal setting, HIV/Aids and pregnancy prevention, and redefining ideas of beauty, all combined with the magic power of camp songs, games and fun, this week was the week of a lifetime. Enjoy the smiles and joy that is women’s empowerment. Via GAD Nicaragua
We wanted to share in our joy that was a surprise visit back to the states. We returned to Oregon after 22 months of our Peace Corps service, and our family wasn’t expecting us to return until our service was fully completed. Mamma Nilsen and Andrew have birthdays one week apart, so while our official reason to take a short trip home was to take the GRE, we couldn’t pass up surprising family in the process. What fun!
**It totally sounds like Andrew says he’s turning 20. It was actually his 28th birthday. He might have been excited. 😉
