Mary Muncher, CMU Junior

On March 21, 2014 I will be departing the United States of America and venturing off to El Espino, El Salvador. I am incredibly excited to embark on this journey and a bit nervous as well. The moment I saw this opportunity I knew it was meant to be. I have been longing for adventure, change, and the chance to make a difference. I know that my eyes will be opened to a variety of things including my perception on community, simplicity, prayer, and mission. I hope to broaden my self-awareness and strengthen my relationships with others. This is going to be an experience of a lifetime that I hope to fully submerge myself in. I am excited to break out of my comfort zone and really push myself to make the best of all situations. What I know now is that people all over the world are just waiting to make connections much like myself. I will have the privilege of meeting these people and hopefully making a difference in some way.
