Greetings from chilly South Africa. The team has arrived and has been busy settling into the dormitories and adjusting to the weather. They have really appreciated all the hats Mr. Bland had them stuff into their bags to leave behind for those in need. They did have two duffels that will hopefully be delivered by the airline tomorrow. They were able to track one and they say they will find the other. Leader Catherine Noel and Dahee are getting some clothes and warm sleeping bags from the shrock’s until their bags arrive. Everyone is in good spirits and the flights and connections went very smoothly. It was such a joy to see the smiles from the team as they all paraded in single file out of passport control to meet with us. We have made contact with the missionary that we will be traveling to on Friday and he is excited to have the team come. Everything is arranged and ready for their trip. They will visit several orphanages and even one in Lesotho just across the border. Tomorrow we plan on going to town in the morning to allow the team to exchange their money for sightseeing. Several have expressed interest in getting a blanket and warmer gloves. The afternoon will be set aside for final preparations for our presentation to the orphans and churches that we will be visiting this weekend. My devotional tonight was on Philippians 2: 5-9. We talked about what it will mean to have the attitude of Christ and be servants to those that we will be visiting. We are all excited to learn more about being the hands and feet of Christ to those around us.
