Africa Bound

Hello,
I have recently been figuring out this whole blog idea and think I may have a better handle on it now. I would like to use it while I am on the field to make photos and videos more accessable. I'll give it a try and appreciate your patience. I leave for the field in less than two weeks now and I am filled with several different emotions. I am anxious to get there and very ready to leave on one hand, but on the other, I am pretty nervous about saying goodbye to what is familiar, people I love, and Dr. Pepper. Call me crazy!! No really, I am so excited about the opportunities that God has given me and pray that I will have eyes to see them as they arise. I am always floored when I take the time to reflect on where He has brought me, and the path I took to get here. I would have never dreamed that I would be headed to South Africa, but here I am, plane ticket in hand ready to go. Please continue to pray for me and my team as we take these steps of faith, as that is all that they are. We have no idea what is in store for us, only that God will take care of us and that somehow, He is going to change people's lives through us. Love you all and look forward to posting what God is doing in South Africa soon!

In Him,
Lindsay

Go, Lindsay, Go!

What you've done becomes the judge of what you're going to do - especially in other people's minds. When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.

Hey lady, you're going to do a great job! I'm so proud of you in what you are doing and what is about to happen to you. I know that you can do it, and that you know who will help you through all of it. You will be a great example to the people of South Africa and everyone who they effect. Just remember who you are and who's you are. You're wonderful!

Say hi to Poombaa for us, Lindsay!

The're delectable, available, the perfect snack
They ain't endangered species
And they don't fight back
Don't dismiss the warthog gastronomy

Take it from he
Take it from me
Take it from he
He's got it all worked out
