Time Capsule Letter from Tim for GLA Fiji (July 5 – July 25)
“The school year is well under way and we’re all equally busy with life! Over at GLA headquarters we’re getting ready for another exciting summer of programs! In Colorado the weather is getting cold and we’re already sliding downhill on skis. Often I find myself wishing I was on the boat getting soaked, in sun and salt water, listening to Max sing a Taylor Swift song. Fiji had a huge impact on my life, and from staying connected to so many of you, I know it was profound for you as well.
Reflecting on our time on the Yasawa islands makes me think about barefooted running during Briley’s extravaganza of competition, hammocks, smiling little kids in tiny clothes, soaking wet sarongs, bucket after bucket of sand, lots of sweating, sleepy-bumpy boat rides, and the sound of a drum and MANTA RAYS! It also makes me think about how many GLA students came to those islands and helped inflict positive change. We all worked on projects that have a lasting impact both to the community and to ourselves.
