i admire kaitlyn. i admire anyone who can leave their home for six months and fly halfway across the world to stay with a bunch of people they’ve never met. i couldn’t do it. i can be on planes, in airports, in hotel rooms all the time, but i like coming home after a week. two weeks max. i haven’t known kaitlyn for that long; to be honest, i don’t even know her that well. i do know that she is following the Lord’s calling for her life & that calling has led her to YWAM Perth. another thing i do know: she makes a delicious americano. any girl that can do that is A+ in my books. she’s been a barista at one of my favourite coffeeshops, porter’s in murrayville, for the past few months. another thing i know: her sid the sloth impression from ice age brings me great, great joy.
i visit porter’s a lot. i always loved chatting with her while i worked. made me miss my barista days: stories of crazy customers and lunch rushes. i know a lot of long work hours, prayer & money saved has gone into this six-month-adventure. i was excited to say goodbye to kaitlyn with some fun photos as a parting gift. another one of my friends, dear makaela, is leaving in five days for YWAM Chico, so she is in some of these shots too. kaitlyn left on a jetplane last week & from what i hear she’s settled into the base safe and sound. ;) i’ll be blogging makaela’s post later. enjoy!
