South Africa Arrival!

Our Fall 2014 “Africa Expeditions” team has officially arrived at the airport in South Africa!  Their leaders called about 30 minutes ago and their travel from Atlanta was uneventful and smooth.  The team will spend the coming days getting introduced to their ministry, coming to know the culture, and finding a routine for the months ahead.   They will be getting internet within the week so that they can communicate home and share more about what their days and weeks will look like.  Until then, we wanted to let you know that all is well.  Hope that you’re...

Mozambique

Our Africa Expeditions team has arrived in Mozambique!  They are deep in the Africa outback and quite a distance from an Interent connection, so they are working on getting an Internet "stick" that will allow them to connect on the leaders computers.  However, things take a little bit longer in Africa than we are used to in the States.  Until then, the team wanted to let you know that they are doing well and fully engaging in the culture around them.  We'll keep you posted until they are able to communicate with you personally.   Thanks, Passport...

Safe Arrival!

Austin, one of the four team leaders for Africa Expeditions just called and the team has arrived safely in Kenya!  They are currently all on a bus in route to their ministry site and will be settling in over the next couple of days.   Now they will spend some time orientating to the new culture and ministry that will cover their time in Kenya.  There should be some blogs rolling out over the next week as they get into a routine and find Internet.   Thanks for all the prayers for this team!
