As a teacher this is hard, as a science teacher -- it was even more challenging. All of my fun lab experiments and hands-on learning was ripped away from me, and my students, so abruptly. But there are positives that are becoming known to me as more time passes.
This volunteer trip is meant for the volunteers to go and help those who have less than us — but honestly, I think the people of Ghana changed my life more. This trip is life-changing and, yes, that gets thrown around a lot about mission trips — but I can truly say that my life changed for the better because of the people I met on the course of this trip. I not only gained a new perspective on life, I gained friendship, love, and the gift knowing that being happy with what you have — the people in your life, the education you are given, etc. — is more important than the material items you may think you need.
My name is Jen, and I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Ghana, Africa last summer with Threads for Education. When I decided to go on the trip, I knew it would change my life, but I could never have imagined how much it would actually change me & my outlook on life...
