Interesting week

The past seven days have been interesting. I have been anxious lately for "the next step". What will come from Medair? From the trip to South Africa in November? Was the timing right for the transition into International Development and Aid work? Questioning, questioning, questioning....

And just as I was about to turn into Doubting Thomas, I had two reminders that it is all in God's time.

In a few weeks I will be on a much needed vaca with the dh. I try and not place expectations on vacations. Too much pressure and disappointment can really be the only result of that. Rather, this place means so much to us. We can take the precious Duke. And, it fulfills my one request "NO airplanes"!!!! ;-)

Been enjoying these a lot! Tried to read the books a few years ago & they just didn't take with me. Saw the movie on emerates & loved it. Good series.

Albino killers 'should be hanged'

I really don't want to turn this into a newsblog, but this is an issue near and dear to my heart.

Click here for one reason why.

BBCNews.com article:

The Tanzania Albino Society (Tas) has called for the men found guilty of killing an albino boy to be hanged publicly as a warning to others......

Wow! "Death for Tanzania albino killers"

Haven't had a chance to read the whole thing. Running out of the house to Holy Eucharist.

But, wow!!!!

About to come full circle





I will try and post more later, but it looks like I will be in South Africa for two weeks this November.

I am very excited about this trip.

Still working a few projects for the DRV

Though I had my big "debrief" with the World Mission Coordinator, I'm still working on a few personal projects for the DRV. First, I need to get the videos I took uploaded to YouTube. I'll post a link when I get that done.

Second, I need to finish the Diocese Profile Bishop Lupaa asked me to create.

Fall is here and I need to buckle down on a list of goals I have created.

I have been provisionally accepted to the ROC for Medair, tons of paperwork there to complete. I love their statement - "You don't need two years of experience in a war zone and a Ph.D. in International Relations to work with us."

Below is a video of Jackie, taken by her sister Axa, from my last trip to Tanzania. This was just before she was diagnosed with Malaria. This is the little girl I am talking about if you have heard my story about her collapsing in front of me. She is, to date, the only child I truly believed might die right in front of me. Thank God she is ok.
