August 20, 2008
After a year of planning and preparing we embarked on our journey from Mitchell Field Airport in Milwaukee. Although we tried to pack light we had 8 carry-ons and 12 large duffle bags. Our flight would take us from Milwaukee to Denver to California to Fiji, to Brisbane, to Port Moresby (the capital of Papua New Guinea), and finally to Madang, where we were to begin our 14 week orientation. While we were excited this day had finally arrived, I won't deny saying good-bye was difficult.
