Well, we're on our way! We found out Friday that we have a Peace Corps assignment in Africa somewhere. And we're slated to "embark" in October, 3 months before we anticipated!  Steve will be working in public health and I will be doing some kind of IT work. That's all we know so far, but may learn more next week. As for which country in Africa we'll be working, all we know is that there is no language requirement. Our Peace Corps recruiter, Chinyere Alu, said that narrows it down to about 11 countries.

We've been pretty much floating since Friday, but we'll have to dig in now to prepare. We still have all the medical and legal hoops to jump through, but I don't predict any snags along those lines. And we have to sell our house! It's been on the market almost 6 weeks and has shown many times (18 so far), but still no offers :--(
