As I sit here pondering what to say about South Africa my mind goes to one place…Hope! In the last year that word has taken on a whole new meaning to me and those closest to me and really anyone who will listen.
Curiosity led me to a meeting about the upcoming South Africa trip sponsored by my church. My wife and I had visited about me going on a mission trip some time but this was the biggest step I had ever taken toward that goal. When I walked in the door for the meeting, I had no plans to go on the trip. When I walked out of the door, I was ready to sign on the dotted line.
