As the time for Cyprus draws near, I’ve noticed that my world at Messiah College is about to take a unique turn. I am currently a Junior who is deciding between a Bible and History Major. This confusion stems from my love of Biblical Studies which help in my spiritual life. However, History fascinates me because it gives a cultural context to interpret certain themes within the text. I am hoping that Cyprus can help me in figuring out a way to uniquely tie the two disciplines into a single, coherent entity which I hope to be my future career. Questions such as how will I really find what I’m looking for plague me before I depart for Cyprus, but I think right now is not the time to worry. I keep my head up to see that I am heading to what the ancient world thought of as a paradise. An island in the Mediterranean with nothing but great weather. What could be better? Only two more weeks, and we are off. The Cyprus Seekers will be searching for their callings in life, and we’ll interview a diverse spectrum of people to see how they arrived where they thought to be and why.
