One Year

Ian and I landed in Perú one year ago today with these kindred spirits. It’s been one hell of a roller coaster, but here we are one year later.

“Life in the Peace Corps will not be easy. There will be no salary and allowances will be at a level sufficient only to maintain health and meet basic needs. Men and women will be expected to work and live alongside the nationals of the country in which they are stationed—doing the same work, eating the same food, talking the same language.

But if the life will not be easy, it will be rich and satisfying. For every young American who participates in the Peace Corps—who works in a foreign land—will know that he or she is sharing in the great common task of bringing to man that decent way of life which is the foundation of freedom and a condition of peace.” – John F. Kennedy

    Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary. Before you know it, you’ll be flying “home”. Cody and I talk about you all every week and the wonderful work you are both doing. Keep the faith and know you are changing not just lives today, but for generations to come. So proud of you both.
