Hi guys! Just a quick note to let you know that we weren't able to leave for Zambia on Sunday as planned. We're waiting to get our passports back, because they're in Pretoria so that our South African visas can be renewed.
Life is good here. We've moved back to our old apartment at the Farm (our 7th move in 26 months). It's a good thing and a bad thing, but we're just happy it's a long term thing. No more moving, please!
Jed's getting into his new role working with the International Team. (Sounds kind of funny when I say that, like it's a large operation. It's a team of 4 now.) They're responsible for the Hands at Work website, marketing material, the Facebooke cause and fan page, and relating to our offices in the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, and South Africa. He's really enjoying it, and it's much less stressful than coordinating the new volunteers.
I'm struggling to keep up with my work supporting Zambia. There's so much going on! Planning to do and funding coming in, project proposals and reports to review, and seemingly endless numbers of emails to get through. I love it though.
Our time away reminded me how much I appreciate living in community with such a great group of people. What a privilege to live and work with volunteers from SA, Canada, the US, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Holland, and the UK. You can't live and work together and remain just friends. These people have seen the best of us and the worst of us, and they've still chosen to love us. We are family.
