T-Minus 4 Days to South Africa

I decided to write about my second trip to Africa. Writing helps me process the experiences I’ve had in life. I was surprised to find this first journal (below or navigate to 2009 on the right) from my trip to the Sudan in 2008. As I glanced through it, great memories flooded my mind.

So I’m tagging this next trip onto the first. Africa is a very different country and culture than we experience in the US on a daily basis. I’m looking forward to the trip. For those of you reading who are not familiar with what I’m doing, I’ll be leaving Friday, February 23 and returning Wednesday, March 14.

The adventure is in two very different chunks. The first week I’ll be serving on a Habitat for Humanity work team along with Peter, Joseph, Brayden and Alisa from Evergreen Covenant. Brayden is our leader. We’ll be laying the foundation for a two bed room, concrete block home for a family of orphan children in Losotho, Africa. Losotho is a small island country totally surrounded by the larger country of South Africa.

The second week, we’ll fly to Capetown to visit Ray and Gay Brook. The guys are staying until Wednesday and we’ll get to do some siteseeing together. Then, I’m staying through the weekend to participate in the bike ride. What a privilege as it appears to be one of the most beautiful rides in the world. 

So this is the place I’ll post information and pictures as often as I can. I look forward to seeing how God will present himself to me on this trip. Life’s a pilgrimage of many sorts. I love adventures! See or as examples.
