My Africa Video Journal!!

I am going to Africa TODAY!!! Well... it's just midnight and I still have to try to get to sleep. ;0) Still I am going to Africa. THE AFRICA! I am ACTUALLY going to Africa. I think it is finally starting to hit me.... I know.... I'm slow right??



Here is my luggage. All packed and ready to go.

Here are all the donations thanks to my wonderful bible study buddies. Thanks ladies! You are wonderful.

I decided to keep a video journal of each day of my trip. That way I can keep you up to date on each day. I don't know how much I will be able to upload things with the slow Internet in Ethiopia. This way you won't miss out on anything. I can load up each day's video journals when I get home. :0) It'll be just like YOU WERE THERE!!!




More soon!!! Hugs, Angel

Angel - you are TOOO cool, beyond the definition. I had my best girlfriend over last night - showing her so many of your videos, your blog, your girls, etc. We cried, laughed, bonded and both agreed that we REALLY want the opportunity to meet you one day. You are so focused, passionate, dedicated, contagious, expressive and honest. YOU have changed my life. I always knew I have been looking for something, I've had a 'bubbling inside me' (as my hubby would describe) - I love children, wanted to help, etc. - but now, thanks to YOU I have a clear direction. As well as a clear faith - and acceptance of letting it happen rather than searching for it.

I've been talking to everyone around me about you (as though I know you) and it's interesting how the seed that has been planted in me BY YOU has had the 'ripple effect' with people around me. It is clear that the seed has now been planted in many of my close friends and family...

My girlfriend & I are saving hard for the mission trip in the spring as well as spending probably too time getting educated on Guatemala (Eagle's Nest, the climate, the geograph's, etc) and are excited for next spring to happen.

Thank you for being the inspiration in bringing GOD back into the CENTRAL part of my life - it feels GREAT!!!

Anyways - sorry for the long "windedness" - have a GREAT trip and I look forward to watching the video updates! Thanks for taking the time to update your blogger buddies.

Have a safe and memorable trip!

Very cool! Have an amazing time!! I know others have had rotten luck with posting directly to blogger from ET due to firewalls, but there is a way to use your email to post to blogger. You probably already have that all figured out though!

You know, no matter where you go you are never beyond the Lord's reach.
