What’s Next?

This is a good question and an important one.  For the past three years I have been in Papua New Guinea and each of my two visits to California during that time have been super short.  So I shouldn’t be surprised when people think that I am just back for a short while and gone again.  But in reality I will actually be around California for about a year, spending time in both Sacramento and Santa Barbara and hopefully visiting a few other places as well.

I loved my work in PNG and I loved the people.  It was not without its hardships but I learned a lot about myself and now I have a better idea of what I am looking for in regards to future work.  At this point I am looking into other options for literacy work outside the US.  I haven’t really ruled anything out yet and am proceeding with prayer, lots of emails and conversations.  Hopefully I will have a place confirmed sooner rather then later and then begin the process to raise more financial support, get things in order and head out once again.

But in the meantime I have time here and plan to use it wisely.  I want to enjoy my family, friends and just being in California again.  I still have some archiving to finish from work in PNG.  And a long list of the typical appointments doctor, dentist, etc. that you have when you return from living abroad.

If you are in California I would love to reconnect with you, if you are not in California I would still like to try.  Please send me an email at joy.candee@gmail.com and I will call you or email you back.  It would be great just to get together but I also have lots of stories and pictures from PNG and love answering questions.  And of course I will continue to keep you all posted here with tales of transition, life and my slice of the world.
