Expat Aspirants; A Family that Travels to Learn

Growing up in a super small town, I couldn’t wait to see the world! My family is huge and I am very blessed to have grown up with grandparents and cousins all around. When we gather, it is a party. Life is good and beautiful in the country…but I just want to see all the world God made.
