a bit closer for all of us

As some of you may know we have had three amazing visitors in the past two months.  First, Lyndi’s sister Nikki and our precious niece Zoe, then, most recently, one of our closest friends and pastor, Patrick Crawford, aka Baba Mkubwa.

Their visits enriched our lives in many ways and one has to do with you.

Their presence, interest and excitement about our lives here in Tanzania have reminded us of the value of staying connected.

Writing on this blog had at times become overwhelming; so much happens in our lives in any given week; how do we possibly explain it in a simple blog post? At times, it has also been difficult because communicating with home means thinking about home and thinking about all we have said goodbye to.

We’ve decided to take our sister’s advice. Keep blogging; connecting, even through a blog, makes 8,000 miles seem a bit closer for all of us.
