Notes from the Field

Notes from the Field are reports from young people volunteering in ministries of Catholic sisters.
The project
began in the summer of 2015 when, working with the Catholic Volunteer Network, we enlisted four young women working in Honduras, Thailand, Ethiopia and the United States to blog about their experiences. This fifth round in the series features one volunteer in Santiago, Chile, and another in Nonghkai, Thailand.

Bloom where you are planted

Notes from the Field - Feeling uprooted by uncertainty, I discerned a new step. I knew that I felt called to a few things: I wanted to learn Spanish in a Spanish-speaking country. I wanted to return to living in an intentional community. And I wanted to explore a new type of social justice work. I hoped to learn more about my life's purpose while still positively contributing to others and the world.
