We’ve spent the last two days at Pilanesburg National Park, and we were blessed to see all these animals and more as we drove through the park on a four hour safari. It was an incredible experience, and the whole team really enjoyed it. We watched elephants drink at a watering hole, and were charged by a black rhino (who stopped before hitting our vehicle).
Before we went on our trip to the park, we had a debriefing time with Michelle and Mike Tessendorf. We spent a lot of time talking about what we had seen, what we had noticed in the two villages, and what we can do when we get home. It was a fun conversation as we discussed ways to spread awareness and encourage the American church (in our local churches and areas of influence) to rise to the challenge of responding to the AIDS pandemic here. It certainly has more of a face for me, and I hope to share that when I get back.
Thanks again for your prayers. We have a teen service to do tonight at the church. Also, I am still healthy! Yeah!
