FOR TEENS

ABROAD AND STILL WITH GOD

For my last semester in high school, I spent three months living in three different countries — Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. I was in Central America, studying on a CELL (Center for Ecological Living and Learning) program with a focus on sustainability through community, I took Spanish classes, cultural and history classes, sustainability classes, and did service work. My dad was actually running the program, so I was able to see him during the trip, but I was staying with "home stay" families for part of the time in rural areas, observing how people in developing countries live.

Even though I was so excited to be on this adventure, at the beginning of the program I was feeling homesick and having persistent digestive problems. The people on the program became concerned and told me that I should visit a doctor. My situation kept me from joining in all the activities freely, and I realized that I needed to pray about the fear of being so far away from home, while feeling so uncomfortable physically.
