|My tiny little diet Coke! I was watching a TV documentary about dogs.|
|We weren't sitting where we could get a picture of the sunrise, but this picture is very much how I remember it!|
|Our Ford Explorer full of luggage as we were leaving home. There are 10 suitcases piled in back there!|
When we arrived at the Johnsons' home, we were greeted by Rebekah and their three little boys. We arrived about 10:00, and by 10:30 we had both had showers and were taking a nap. Wes set the clock on his phone to wake us up in a couple of hours, but he forgot to turn on the alarm, so we slept for four hours instead! We woke up in mid-afternoon and forced ourselves to get up and get ready for supper. The church there has its mid-week service on Thursday, so we went to church and began meeting people our first evening there! We sang with them in English, and then tried to sing along in Zulu also! The pastor spoke English, but I must admit I had a very hard time keeping up - I was still exhausted. I've never had such a hard time staying awake in church! We were able to get into bed by about 9:00 that night, slept great all night, and felt almost like ourselves again Friday morning. We still had to go to bed early Friday night, but by Saturday we were able to keep going all day and begin to learn about Bro. Johnson's ministry in Clewer and Witbank, South Africa.
Let me add here that I was going to share a couple more pictures, thinking I had access to some of the pictures Wes took in South Africa. I didn't take any there because he was using our big camera (instead of a phone or iPad). We have enabled photo sharing between our computers, but I suppose he only shared pictures from Europe to this point. I'm really running behind on getting these posts ready, so I'm going to publish this one and try to get some South Africa pictures to share. Thanks for your patience this week. My computer has had issues all week on top of trying to learn this "sharing" thing!
