As I previously posted, our daughter's team left for Swaziland yesterday and I really was hoping and praying we'd get to talk to her before she left. Well God blessed us with just that!

Apparently about 4 members have cell phones so they passed them around letting everyone get a chance to call before they left The U.S. I talked to "A" for about 10 minutes a little after 5:00.

Here's the summary---

She sounded really happy and even a bit hyper! A HUGE deal for her.

She said that training has been great. She said that the whole team has gotten along really, really well. No fighting or personality conflicts. This in itself is a BIG PRAISE GOD as her main concern was how she'd get along with everyone but she really loves them.

She proudly shared the fact that during training she did 100 push-ups! WOW!

She said that God has really been speaking and working. She's learned to listen to Him as she never has before and is also getting back to truly worshipping Him.

She said that one day she did get a bit of a "heat stroke" and that's why she was sitting in the shade in the photo. But she has been drinking lots and lots of water. It was just that the extreme temp got to her that day.

One of the team member's parents came up to the airport today for a visit and took a bunch of photos so those I've posted here.

It was a great call and a huge blessing. She loves us, misses us, but is doing GREAT!

God is so good and I am so proud and happy for my girl.

Thanks again for your prayers and support!
Praising God,

P.S. Please be praying for two of the girls on the team who ended up not being able to go on the trip due to personal reasons. This is tough on them AND their team as they've gotten very close in a short amount of time.

I just love how happy they all look!
