David left for Europe on Sunday.
We are thrilled for David; we've always hoped that he would study abroad. We thought he might choose Paris, since he is rather proficient in French, but he selected the GIF program, which has been in existence since the 1960s, and is well-established and respected. In fact, Gregg visited friends on that program back in the late 1970s!
David is going to learn to speak Italian, which may confuse his French a bit, but no worries - both are romance languages. It will be fun to hear him speak Italian.
I spent a quarter in England when I was a college student, and loved it. It was a life-changing, enriching blessing. I pray that this will be the case for David!
