(Pre-Service Training)

We received our site announcement the fourth week into Pre-Service Training . We were assigned to a village in west central Moldova, right on the Prut River, which serves as the border between Moldova and Romania.

PC staff and M24* volunteers taped the outline of the country on the gym floor and marked each village where a volunteer would be. Then a volunteer’s name was drawn, and that volunteer was escorted to his/her site assignment.

* M24 means these volunteers were the 24th group to come into Moldova. Curt and I are M25’s.
