its official!

I'm going to Poland!!!
I just signed the papers this week :) My job title is "Media Specialist". Basically, I will be doing photo, video, writing, etc. to provide content for 2 websites. One is info about the missionaries and team there, and the other an outreach website. I am so excited to be working with them! I will also be making and following relationships with those the Lord places in my path.

I had to tell work today, and I can't tell you how difficult that was. Working at the paper was the best first job I could have ever asked for - I work with great people who really helped shape who I have become as a photojournalist. The opportunities I've had here have been amazing and I will always remember some of them.

So, here are some dates and information about where I will be in the next few months...
My last day will probably be June 17. I will move back to High Point that Saturday and spend a little over a month with family and friends and taking care of odds and ends before I leave...such as storing furniture! Aside from a family beach trip, I will be traveling through parts of NC to see friends...let me know if you want to get together while I am home.

FPO (Field Personnel Orientation) begins in August (4th) at the International Learning Center - aka - ILC, which is located right outside of Richmond, VA. I will have 8 weeks of intensive training before I actually fly out to Poland in early October. 

If you would like more information, leave a post or email me at kaylinbowers@gmail.com. 

I can't wait to see what God has in store for the next 2 years of my life! He has been such a blessing to me so far and has guided my heart and my life in His path over the past few years, giving me a yearning to continue following Him. He has opened doors and closed doors in my life. I just love getting to run through them when a new one opens!
