G-39, We Did It!

Thursday afternoon we had our final event as Peace Corps volunteers in Paraguay. Those of us left from our group, G-39, gathered in the office for some kind words from our fearless leaders (including the brand new Country Director!)

And as is only fitting considering the number of certificates we’ve each given out over the two years, we were each presented with a certificate of completion for two years of service in Paraguay. As if that wasn’t good enough, it was followed by a delicious chocolate cake.

Per tradition, we then each rang the Peace Corps bell, officially closing out our time as volunteers.

I like closure and this ceremony was a perfect way to come full circle and end our Peace Corps run.

So was a last visit to probably our favorite restaurant in Paraguay, Gagnam, near Mercado 4 for some delicious Korean food and super friendly staff. Heck, the owner’s daughter is now even in college in Isaiah’s home state of Kansas. It’s a small world after all, eh?

What’s next for us? For the next month or two Isaiah and I are going to enjoy some more of South America, starting with a loooong bus ride to Brazil tomorrow morning. We even look forward to meeting up with Isaiah’s brother and wife along the way. As for the blog, we plan to keep popping in with a quick update or some photos of what we’re up to, so feel free to come along for the ride!

  1. Can hardly believe it’s already been two years! Where does the time go? So happy for the successful completion of your term. It’s been so fun to have participated in your adventures. Thanks for sharing and safe travels.

  2. Your blog has been a wonderfully creative way to allow us to peek into your experiences. Congratulations on your successful two years. We hope to see you in Goshen sometime this fall!

  3. Wow – it is hard to believe that the 2 years (and 3 months) has ended. And because of this blog I feel like I know what you’ve been through these last years and won’t have to pepper you with questions when we see you this fall. Safe travels and have fun.

Drop us a line; we love hearing from you!
