Day 11, 12, & 13: Lions and Zebras and Giraffes, oh my!

1
“Uncle” interviewed me again this week, and I think I’m beginning to really enjoy encouraging young people to get involved in helping their community! 🙂

Sabbath was wonderful yesterday!

My lovely friend Cora and her family had us over for lunch.

We went to a different church, Avondale, and I was able to encourage the youth to “take a step of faith” and say yes to God!

My life is proof that when you say “yes” to God, He will take you to incredible places, and in the process, your journey will be a blessing to others and yourself.

I am so excited – this week we’ll finally be digging the borehole well, and I’ll get to meet the community that will be benefiting from this project.

Please pray that everything goes smoothly, that we have safe travels (it’s over 4 hours out of the city), and that we can do all that we plan to do!

Also – – it isn’t too late to donate to the cause! While we have enough to dig the borehole, it’d be cool if we could really renovate the school and make it usable. Some classrooms don’t even have walls. I’ll post pictures this week, so you’ll be able to see what I mean 🙂

 

Sunday Adventures…

Ok, so in Zimbabwe (as it is in America) you have to pay to see the lions.

People don’t own them as pets.

Kids don’t play with lions at recess 😛

 

So now that we’ve got THAT out of the way, I had a really exciting afternoon.

My “Uncle” took me to the lion park here in Harare, and we got to see all these cool animals!

 

Now, anyone who knows me well knows that I’m not the most…comfortable when it comes to animals. I have an extreme phobia of dogs, I’m kinda ok with cats, but I love horses. Weird? I know.

 

Anyway, below are the pictures that PROVE that I faced my fears today and got up close and personal with these furry friends 🙂

 

This was the first we saw of the lions...I felt comforted by the wire fence!

There was a place we could get out and walk by baby lions...it was still scary!

Close call!
Close call! The lion started moving toward me, and that flimsy fence didn’t comfort me!
The giraffe was so close, I could've walked over and petted it. No fences!
