BIG UPDATE: Last Thursday, our Placement Officer called us with an exciting opportunity. The Peace Corps would like us to apply for an incredible program that works with the National Parks Service/ EPA equivalent in Mexico. This position is a little more structured and would have a larger impact than the typical Peace Corps assignment. The nature of this program requires us to undergo an additional application and interview process. Our placement officer believes we are strong candidates for the position, and we should find out if we are accepted by the end of this month. If we are accepted, we are scheduled to depart as soon as August 27th. If we are not accepted, we will still be considered for Fall departure, but will most likely be headed to Sub-Saharan Africa.
We are really excited about this opportunity, but it will definitely impact our October wedding plans. After careful consideration, we have decided to move our wedding up to Saturday, August 18th. We know this is a drastic change, and we hope everyone will do their best to be there with us to celebrate our wedding and journey to the Peace Corps together.
Thank you so much for your flexibility and understanding!
