We're here!!!!

Hey everyone!

Quick update from Cape Town!! We made it! After a 1 hr flight, 5 hr lay over, 18 hr flight!!!!, the fastest customs transition I've EVER experienced (seriously, we were running through the airport to catch our flight!!), then a quick hop over to Cape Town we made it!!!! We had an interesting ride over from the airport. All 15 (plus our driver Mputumi and ALL our luggage (each person brought atleast 3 bags, do the math) crammed into a 14 passenger convi with a trailer on the back!! The guest house is beautiful. Jess and I have the most gorgeous room. We are on the first floor and can see Table mountain right outside our window!! We're taking it "easy" (I'm wondering what hard looks like!!!) today. Everyone is getting their internet fix and then after lunch we are heading to G.A.P.A. (Grandmothers Against Poverty and Aids) for a welcome celebration.

Mom and Kikamoy- you guys will be so proud of me! I've eaten yogurt TWO DAYS in a row!! Haha!

Hopefully I will be able to update every few days or so. I appreciate the prayers and warm wishes on my journey. I love you all!!


  1. Glad to hear you made it safely! I hope you took a camera...I want to see pics! Praying for you =)

  2. Love you, see its not that bad.

  3. which room!? i was on the first floor---the pinkish room, if you walk in the front door, it's on the right---with the two pink recliners...which one did you end up with?

    so excited you all have more time to use internet there! we barely had access and trust me, it's good to have contact with everyone back home during the process.

    SO glad to hear all the updates :)
