Thankfully, the knots in my stomach have untied - not going to lie, I was getting a little nervous and excited. I still don't think it's hit yet - but by this time tomorrow (well, Israel-time) we'll be in the Holy Land, dining on the Sea of Galilee.
Marisa and I are rooming together, so that should be nice. It's so good to share this experience. (And it's a good thing it's a pilgrimage - otherwise we'd be much more prone to bickering.)
I've already met some new people - with a range of ages of all 40 of us, one of the things I am most excited for is the diversity of wisdom and experiences everyone brings to the table. (On a side note, I think that's why I enjoy MOC so much.)
Well, we're about to take off. Here we go...
