In Just Less Than Three Weeks

Have you ever been somewhere and because of what you experienced your life was forever changed? Wanna go to Africa? In less than 3 weeks I will be on a plane for 24 hours traveling back to Dondo Mozambique. I am so excited to see my friends and kind of anxious to see if I remember everyone's name:) Getting older ya know and I don't remember things like I used to. I surely will remember your face but not so much your name.

I do remember my friend Rita. Rita was the woman in her 30-40's who cooked and cleaned in the house where I stayed. We couldn't hardly speak a word to one another but I would sing to her each morning. rita...ra ra ra rita, (the Lola song with a different twist) she loved the attention and that was my delight of the day to see her smile and love it. Living in Dondo for about 3 weeks I discovered what a wonderful country we live in here in the USA, with freedom and great opportunitites. I also discovered that no matter where I go, even half way around the world, my God is there too. He really never leaves me nor will forsake me. Isn't God awesome!

Keep in touch I will be writing more while I am in Africa! Yippppppiiiiieeeee! I'm going to Africa, I'm going to Africa, I'm going to Africa!!
