So, a couple of days ago it was Mother's Day and Mer already blogged about that, but I wanted to talk to you about the sermon that was preached on Mother's Day at my church. The pastor of my church is a male and he generally always speaks, so to see his wife walk onto the stage was quite exciting.
I know I am supposed to be continuing on with tales from my Africa trip, but I am taking a break this week for a topic that is worthy of talking about…Moms!
Marion Garretty said that, “Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.” I think she hit the nail on the head when she penned those words. I know that without a single doubt in my mind that I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for my mom. Well, both of my parents, but this is all about moms! Sorry dad! :)
I have been silent the last few weeks on my GLAM blog, but I have a good excuse! I have been in Africa! It was an incredible trip visitng my best friend, Liv, and her husband, Brian, and working with their ministry, Anza Imani. We were able to spend lots of time with the street boys there in Mwanza, Tanzania. This was my 3rd trip to Mwanza and it was incredible! Over the next several weeks I would like to share what we did adn the incredible things did and taught me while I was gone. So, here goes nothing...The first six days of my trip! :)
Thursday, April 4, I was at the airport headed to Africa. Within the first 3 hours of our journey we encountered a very delayed flight and sprinted through the Atlanta airport (that is not an exaggeration, I promise!), 35 hours and 5 plane rides later…We made it to Mwanza!!!
