Love heals homesickness

As the plane’s wheels touched down on the runway in Cusco, Peru, I thought, “Maybe it won’t be so bad.” 

At first, when I learned I’d be going on a service trip to Peru with other young Christian Scientists, I was beyond excited. As the trip got closer, I became even more enthusiastic … until the night before I was scheduled to leave, when a wave of nervous fear flooded over me. Should I go on the trip? Would it be safe? I didn’t want the nervousness I was feeling to ruin my experience.
