We've spent a couple days in Tanzania now. Initially, we see a lot of need but also a beautiful people. It's intimidating, being here. Sometimes we're overwhelmed, what can people do?!? What can two of us do? Not much... but we serve a big God, and there's plenty of hope! See 2 Chron 7:14.
The prospect of driving is scary. We'll do our best to avoid the millions walking in the road, the even more millions on bikes (especially the guys carrying hundreds of eggs on their bicycles!), and the passing goats, cattle, and chickens. We're definitely immersed in Swahili and have a lot to learn. The food's pretty good, we had some warthog and enjoyed it. Have only crossed paths with a couple monkeys and one snake so far. The mountains are beautiful!!!! So beautiful. Can't wait to spend some time camping up there.
We're off to Zambia for a month, we'll be outta touch till then. Leave lots of good notes for us!
