Hi guys! Cacey and I are getting anxious to be in Africa!
For those of you who don't know, my sister Cacey and I will be going to Africa for about five months. Before we reach Africa, my family, Jarred, a few friends, and I will be going to Switzerland for ten days to visit Nadia (our exchange student from Switzerland). We will mostly be in Zurich and Interlaken and we are SOOO EXCITED! After my family leaves to go back home, Jarred and I will be going to Rome and Venice for a few days, while Cacey stays with Nadia.
On July 19, Cacey and I fly to Nairobi, Kenya! I will be going on to Tanzania to volunteer in an orphanage for babies called Forever Angels. It is the same place I volunteered at two years ago for one month. Cacey will be staying with a friend in Kenya, working in a hotel until September, and then joining me at the baby home from September to December. Yeaaaah!
Like I said, we are SOOO excited to be there! I can't wait to see the babies!!!! My heart has ached for so many months missing them. Here are two pictures from my trip before. You can see how happy I was in these moments. Ahhh! I am so excited, so excited, so excited!
While we are craving African babies in our arms, we are also saying goodbye to our friends and family, which is proving to be more difficult than I imagined it would be. We both want to thank everyone who has supported us on this journey; not only the donations we have received for the babies, but also for the love and encouragement you have given us to pursue our dream of helping those in need. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
So, this is our first attempt at keeping a blog. Be patient with us. Cacey and I will try to switch off posting info on our travels. We will probably only have internet access once a week or so...although, if it takes us longer to post, please don't have a heart attack. WE ARE OKAY! The places we are going are very safe and we will be taken care of. :)
Love you guys! Wishing you all the best for the next six months! Please comment, email, and facebook us too. We want to know what's happening in your lives too! :) Muah!
