Africa is now…and there’s no ice to be found. 

On the compound… You will find peace and lovely surroundings as far as the eye can see. Today was no exception… a calm relaxing breather before the tck’s arrive. This was desperately needed after the challenging adventure also known as navigating international travel. I had the opportunity to walk a long road through beautiful tea fields. The local workers passed our tiny group like we were standing still on the challenging uphill climb. The view at the top was breathtaking, something from a coffee table book.    

   The weather here is perfect, in the shade it’s cool and breezy. The nights are chilly and just right for hot coco, of course I indulge in the delicious Cadbury delightfulness!  

 All of the food both identifiable and unknown has been scrumptious! The tea divine and no complaints here on the bitter lemon soda! I will say so far I haven’t seen a speck of cold drink or ice anywhere; even the fruit smoothies are room temperature. Tomorrow I have determined to discover African ice cream in the form of a milk shake. Let’s see how that goes. 

Our team is wonderful, a small beautiful group of world travellers filled to the brim with innumerable stories and excited to share. 

We hope to make many memories here during this short journey. Building relationships, changing lives, and seeing growth in those we love on and undoubtably in ourselves.  

I must take a moment to say a big heartfelt thank you for all of you that played a roll in getting me here! My gratitude grows with each passing day here! I covet your prayers and pray for you all in return… Gods blessings on those who take time to invest in these families by sending me and spending time in prayer for this time period! 

Thank you from the bottom of my overflowing heart. Most appropriately said at Trinity… If I go, you go. 


Think on these things…

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.   -Philippians 4:8

How is this relevant now, today? How can I apply this effectively myself in my life?

  • Jesus is the truth, the Bible is truth. Think on the Bible.
  • Our adversary is the father of lies. Dishonesty is like lying.
  • The right conduct. Doing things right and with excellence.
  • A pure mind is what He wants! Garbage in, garbage out…
  • Jesus is lovely.
  • Look for the good in people, practice being the one who cancels negativity with a good report. Too much negative in our world.

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
-Prov. 4:23
