A man carrying a big stick came out of the woods in the middle of Nowhere, Swaziland. He approached Carol, who stood next to our car. He insisted that he loved her and she should be his wife! Good thing he didn’t have a goat to slaughter, or she’d be married.

Chickens also help to feed the people and the tilapia.

Maze, maze, everywhere!

Children in Swaziland say their favorite pet is a chicken…that’s  because they can eat them. It’s a practicality thing!

Got maze… yes, in Swaziland!

  1. Hi, your mission to Africa must be a great experience of life. My dad would have lived to see it. Blessings to you, Jan

    • Your dad was a HUGE inspiration to my adventurous soul! Uncle Howard knew how to live and love and GO! Thanks for keeping up with my journey, Jan!! I look forward to what’s next, though I am enjoying what’s now! =)

    • So glad to hear you are enjoying the “view”, Margie! I am enjoying the RIDE! =) Thank you for your prayers! I need them in so many ways.

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    This is Nedra, Bambi’s friend. It has been many years, but I remember meeting you and it was so nice to finally meet you after hearing about you for years. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for safe travels. I know you are doing great works, and you said it perfectly, it is all about the children. Bambi was kind enough to share your journey with me. I look forward to seeing you when you return.
    God Bless you!
    Always,
    Nedra

    • Nedra!!! Yes, I remember you well! So glad to hear from you, and know that Bambi passed this along to you! God is sooo good to follow, and I look forward to more of what He has in store! Grab hold, and hold on! You never know where He will take you once you say “I will.”

  3. Hey Jennifer! This is Angie, JeanO’s friend. SO glad we got acquainted over lunch in BR. I’m eagerly following your blogs…keep them in a “Magpie” folder! I’m praying many will read your blogs and let God put a burden in their hearts for the children! That’s where it starts over there….the children. Help them when they are young and show them the way to Calvary! So glad you are doing all this. God bless you abundantly!!
