This is one of my first blogs! (: I am currently getting ready to go on a mission trip to Mexico in about a week and I am having some concerns about food in terms of carb count and a packing list. Being a girl-packing is hard. Being a femail diabetic-even harder. hahah. SO I was wondering if anyone had any packing lists for type 1 diabetic any stories about thier mission trip or experience with real mexican food.
I AM SO EXCITED for my mission trip, making a difference means so much to me and I hope that I will learn all that I am suppose to and grow as an individual. We are doing a lot of physical labor there like gardening, composting, building adobe bricks, dry toliets and the building around it as well as working in a school kitchen and so much more! I really hope the heat doesnt affect me too much, I’m mainly worried about feeling emotionally and physically drained as well as lack of strength. With the heat, physical activity and everything going on this is going to be a challenge! I just hope everything goes well and I will not let me diabetes hold me back rather use this to show others that it will not.
Thanks for listening to my short rant! I’d love to hear your travling tips or mission stories!
