Just about 21 years ago, I graduated from college and began my first journey to Africa. A passel of my college and church friends threw me a surprise going away party...and let me tell you, it was TRULY a surprise! My roommate Darla was convinced that I had figured it out or at least was highly suspicious but she gave me more credit than I deserved. I was totally oblivious til the very end when I arrived at the party venue, escorted by my then "just friends" pal who would later become my beloved hubby.

What a sendoff...and what a life God had planned for me. I'm so thankful for those sweet, sweet friends from my W years, and I'm so grateful for the amazing adventure He started me on when He sent me to Mbabane, Africa as a 22 year, fresh from college grad. I can only imagine what He's got in store for the future. If the past is any indicator, it's going to be well worth the price of admission.
