I am a mess. I woke up crying and had a hard time stopping. I took my dog Frankie to my sister-in-laws 1st thing in the morning crying my eyes out. I just could not keep it together. I was anxious and nervous and really doubting why I was going to Africa. I was in constant communication with God, just praying for strength and courage.
I had great flights…no issues at all really. I flew from Seattle to JFK. I had a 5 hour layover there. I still wanted to turn around and go home. I battled tears the whole time I was in New York. My flight to Johannesburg was 15 hours long. And let me tell you….that is LONG! But I have to say it was great. Some of the easiest flights I have ever been on.
They sang this song everyday and it brought me to tears everyday. (although I was able to keep it together for the most part!) J I sang this song to myself the whole time I was in Swaziland. I sort of feel like it is my theme song now. And it is so true….The Love of Jesus is SO WONDERFUL!
So this 1st day with the children my heart opened up to all sorts of possibilities and once again God was telling me…Trust me! I’ve got your back. Thank you for coming…I know this was out of your comfort zone…but I also know what I made you for. And this is going to be so worth it in the end.
