And the winner is....

I am heading to Burkina Faso!

I will be a community health worker, so basically I will work under a head nurse and do things to help teach the community about HIV, malnutrition, and the importance of getting vacationed! I confirmed my post today!

Now I have a list of things I need to get done ASAP! I leave for my staging Oct 12, I still do not know where I am going for that, but I will find out soon! I have way to much stuff to-do and I am unable to write a longer description!

Still Counting down

I'm a little bored at work and as usual I am reading the Peace Corps website. I find it very useful while I wait for more information. I figured I would share some of that usefull.

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy established the Peace Corps to promote world peace and friendship.

The Peace Corps' mission has three simple goals:
Helping the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women.
Helping promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served.
Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans.
