Yesterday marked the 1 month deadline til I leave for Canada. Of course I am excited. Still, now I have to start actually doing the stuff I need to do to prepare. I’ll have to set up electricity and such for when we get there. Today, I started packing boxes and writing out my manifest. (Hopefully everything will fit in my car!) I also contacted FAFSA again…apparently I’ve been mistaken about how this loan stuff works for oh…the entire summer. I also discovered that I’m the first student ever to come through the seminary doing a FAFSA loan. (No wonder the seminary people were just as confused as I was…)I think we got it straightened out, though, so maybe at last I can get that loan stuff done.
Last night I talked to one of my seminary roommates on the phone. We had a good talk.
With my departure deadline drawing near, I’m having to notice the things that I was trying to ignore previously. Mainly financial things (since I have nowhere near the money). Here’s a summary (all these are rough estimates):
Trip to Canada…$1000
School…$3720 a year
Rent/utilities/etc…$3220 a year
Groceries/gas/necessities…$-I don’t know- a year
Your prayers as I wait to see the results of God fighting this uphill battle…priceless.
