As another update, the other intern who came at the same time as me, had some trouble with immigration. She was planning on staying for the year and hadn't booked her return flight when she arrived. Immigration didn't like that and so penalized her, making her book a flight home within 60 days. She booked her flight and attempted to appeal for a Visa but the paperwork has been slow...
Long story short: her 60 days is up this weekend. Saturday she flies back to Ontario and not sure whether she will be be coming back... I think it's hard for her to say goodbye to everyone so soon and so fast. Today was the first day we officially knew she wouldn't get the Visa in time. It's all a bit crazy but we've all been trusting God has a reason for it all.
The next couple weeks, I'll be flying solo for organizing Christmas parties and youth nights (yikes...). Time is flying though. I'll be back in the homeland in just a few weeks (WHAT)!
Prayer Requests (pleaseeeee): Safety and peace for the other intern; solo planning and coordinating without her; and starting Dressember in the freezing, Ireland weather!
love, from Dublin
