Today. September 27th, 2010 (60 MORE DAYS!!!)

Okay. So I'm new to this whole blogging thing (so don't judge). But let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I'm Dawson Oler! I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I'm 17 years old. I'm a senior at Riverton High School. I like to listen to music and watch sports. The purpose of this blog is to raise awareness for my mission for Operation Smile to GUWAHATI, INDIA! Operation Smile is a medical organization that travels to various 3rd world countries and operates on children who have cleft lips and palates. On every medical mission, they bring along 2 student volunteers and 1 student sponsor. That's where I come in! I get to go over to India with another student (in my case, 2), and my main purpose is to educate the children before their surgeries. I put a lot of hard work into preparing for my mission, and I'm so excited to leave! Only 60 more days!!

I will keep blogging on this as I figure more things out. Wish me luck! You can add me on Facebook if you want, and talk to me about my mission! Hopefully, I will also be able to blog while on my mission!

Have a great day!
