In some ways I cannot believe that May is already here! This Friday I will be boarding one plane after another, eventually landing in Tanzania. My heart is overflowing with excitement and anticipation for all that I know God is going to do through this trip.

Here’s a peek at where the trip will be taking along the way ~ from one side of Tanzania to another…


During my time in Tanzania, I will be sharing daily about the groups travels, visits to the child development centers, my thoughts, AND I am SO VERY EXCITED to meet David, a little boy that we sponsor in Tanzania. Our kids have been drawing pictures, carefully choosing things for me to pack for him and his family and cannot wait to see pictures and videos of me with him {in person!!} with his face smiling at the things that have hand-picked for him.

More than anything, the team and I would so covet your prayers and support during our trip! I have been overwhelmed at the emails, prayers and so much more from you all. I am beyond blessed to be a part of such an amazing community and although we may not know each other face-to-face, your prayers and encouragement are felt! THANK YOU!

    I Can not wait to read your Compassion blog updates! Excited to learn more about what their ministry “looks” like. Praying for you and your team. God bless you.

  7. Jolanthe:
    It was so wonderful to meet you in person at 2:1. I know your infectious love for the Lord and for others will fill the people you meet along the way on your trip. I cannot imagine the excitement and joy you must be feeling right now. God bless every step of your trip.  And how exciting for the boy you all sponsor–it must fill him with a wonderful feeling to know someone cared so much as to travel half way across the globe to meet him. Nothing like that sense of love–that will be a huge blessing to him. God bless you!
