As I’m sure this blog title gave it away – I am FINALLY headed to Africa!! I will be headed to South Africa and Swaziland in July of 2011. I realize this is 8 months away, but we had our first team meeting Sunday night and I couldn’t be more excited. There are a group of twenty of us who will be headed out for about 16 days to serve in various way in these two countries. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve wanted to go to Africa for about 6 years now and it’s finally happening. I’ve decided to chronicle the next 8 months through the training and fundraising experience. I need to raise $3000 in the next few months and you better believe I’ll be calling on you guys to journey alongside me :). I’m not sure if I’ll be able to blog in South Africa but if I’m able to I’d love to share the stories while I’m there. For now, please begin praying for myself and our team. Pray protection around us as we learn and grow together. Can’t wait to share this journey with you all!!
