The Scoop Down South

Sorry I've been so negligent in writing! We finished classes last Friday and have exams this week and next week. I leave the 10th to travel around South Africa, then leave the country the 7th of July. Next Friday I'm planning on flying to Johannesburg and taking the Baz Bus (a backpackers' transport system) down to Swaziland, maybe to Lesotho (pr. "Les-oo-too), down the Wild Coast, and finally the Garden Route, which I still haven't done! I'm meeting my church in Hermanus for a week-long mission trip. Hermanus is one of the big whale-watching sites of South Africa. We'll be leading children's Bible clubs (VBS) there. The day after that ends (July 2) I'm hoping to go river rafting on the Orange River and get my passport stamped with "Namibia." I've heard it's a fun trip. I love rafting, too. And hiking. This trip's full of both of them! So, basically, I need to pack for a four-week long trip, plus pack up EVERYTHING from Concordia before I leave because I won't be coming back here! That's a lot to do in a little bit of time . . . on top of studying for my exams! I've already started packing. I'm really excited to come home and see you guys.

The girls after a pot-luck dinner. Why didn't we think of this earlier?
