Have you ever tried to explain something to someone and you simply could not connect the dots? When I was first married to my wife, we oftentimes had this problem. We came from different families and had different assumptions. She thought that cleaning the table meant putting the dishes in the sink. I thought it meant washing them or putting them in the dishwasher.
Renee spent over a year bonding with her team and building a love for this country. She worked hard to raise support and get all of her paperwork together. She prayed and prayed and then prayed some more. She sold possessions including her car. She struggled through the emotions of having to say goodbye to family and friends. She mentally prepared herself to live in a different culture vastly different than her own. She was set and ready to leave.
