PLEASE BE PRAYING... we prepare to leave for Africa in just over three days and a tummy bug is going thru our family. The hunky hubby and the teenaged sons had it about a week ago. Then when no got it for several days, I thought the rest were going to remained unscathed. Well, I was wrong and came down with it today.

Please pray for us. We all need protection and healing in these days leading up to Swaziland.

Thanks and hope to post more about our trip and preparations tomorrow.

In the meantime, here is a tourism video that tells a good deal about the culture and shows just how beautiful Swaziland can be. Of course, it doesn't even mention the majority of people that are struggling to survive, the high HIV/AIDS rate, and the large number of orphans. I do enjoy the lovely side of Swaziland but I go because He calls. He calls to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and visit the orphans and widows in their distress. I go because He has honored our family with participating in His loving, saving plans for this nation.
