South Africa has arrived

South Africa has arrived

We arrived safe and healthy at the Teen Missions base in Pretoria, South Africa bright and early yesterday morning. The traveling was long and a bit tiring especially with the time change from Florida, but praise God that although British Airways had told us they would charge an extra $50.00 for our second duffels, they charged us nothing. All of our luggage arrived intact and on time. Thank you to all the parents who sent food for commissioning, it travelled with us and served us well in the airports!

The team spent the day yesterday “moving in” to their dorm rooms, washing their travel clothes and starting Bible Study and other classes. Though we know it would be cold in South Africa, we were a little overwhelmed with how cold the morning and night are. The afternoon warms nicely, but to help us with the climate we went out to a store today to buy an extra warm blanket. We also changed our money and did grocery shopping and as I write this the team is excitedly visiting KFC South Africa and other such fast food venues. Last evening we had the opportunity to meet some of the BMW students on the base, and to hang out with Joy and Jolie, the daughters of Karen and Jason Shrock, our missionaries here. Everyone was excited to meet and we look forward to knowing them better. Our first presentation is scheduled for tomorrow (Friday) afternoon at an orphanage, and then Saturday at one of the Motorcycle Sunday School Mission sites.
