One day left before Orientation and the situation in Bangladesh remains challenging at best. I discovered today that Mohamadpur, Dhaka, is a few feet underwater. This is the area in which MCC has its offices and guest house in Dhaka. I imagine the flooding at the moment is only going to make life more challenging for many Bangladeshis this coming year. Disease and homelessness is rampant (over 9 million people have been displaced to date), and moving around the country is dangerous and very difficult. I think Wading Through Water may be a very apt description of the beginning of this adventure. I pray for safety and learning.
