Today is the last full day that our team will be together in Africa. We have had a fabulous time together as we have served the Beveni Carepoint and were amazingly blessed in the process. Yesterday we left Swaziland and arrived at our guest house in Nelspruit, South Africa, just in time for supper at Jon Dorry's at Riverside Mall. Then it was up dark and early this morning for a full day in Kruger. We had a great time and saw the "Big Five" --- Lions, Cape Buffalo, Rhinos, Elephants, and a LEOPARD!!! That was the first time that Anna and I had seen that cat despite our multiple trips to Kruger Game Park. We also saw lots of other critters including crocs, giraffe, hornbills, and impala.

Tonight we are back at the mall using the internet cafe while we wait for our food at the Detroit Spur American Indian themed, chain restaurant.

Tomorrow the team will drop us off at the rental car place on their way to the Jo'burg airport and Jim and I will head back west to Swaziland.

Please pray for all of us as we travel, for Jim and I as we begin our second half of our African journey, and for our kids and my mom back home. This will be the longest that we have been away from them and yes, I'm missing them.

God is good and I can't wait to get to tell you more about what He is doing here. Don't forget that you can read detailed updates at our team leader's blog:

Love to you and as the Swazis say, SALA KAHLE! (Stay well!)
