My mommy is gorgeous! I love her, and am so blessed that I look like her physically and even more blessed that she taught me how to be emotionally, strong with kindness and grace.
We had such a nice time celebrating Merina and Ron's marriage!
My heart! Even Mike my son from another mother! Miss these boys so much!!!!
These baby elephants were so cute.
Happy Birthday my love!! I know this was the toughest birthday you have had since you couldn't be with the kids and you miss them horribly, but I hope the baby elephants and the yummy dinner made it a tiny bit better. Love you!
I've been blessed with the opportunity to work in South Africa many times, but going to this mission station in Mpumalanga, SA and meeting these amazing kids, was by far the highlight to my many visits. This mission station cares for 30 kindergarten kids daily. They are also minister and care for many people in their village of about 1,000 people. They are in the process of building a medical clinic, a vocation training school and a garden to grow their own organic food for the children and community. It's exciting to see a Christian organization that is trying to break out of the "toxic charity" model and build a sustaining environment that can continually bless the community. We are looking forward to putting together a mission trip to help bless this village. They are in desperate need of updated construction, medical training, and help working with the kids. They also are in desperate need of building, medical, school, and everyday supplies. If you or your church is interested in a great mission project, please let me know.
God is discovered entirely through creation - the brilliance of a sunset, the powerful roar of a waterfall, the symphony of sounds you hear in the heart of the forest, or the vastness of space and its countless stars. Benjamin F Sullivan #waterfall#africa#zambia#victoriafalls
