So, I made it! Thank you all for your prayers!
I arrived in Kilimanjaro yesterday, and yes, I saw the mountain! It's pretty awesome. I live right next to Kili's sister mountain called Meru. Meru is about 15,000ft. and can be quite challenging to climb I hear...maybe I'll climb it one day? Ok, so I got into Kili around 10am, bought my visa, went through customs, and then met Pat who's the head of the organization I'm working for here in TZ. I took a nap, and then woke up to go to dinner last night with most of the staff and a few others from around the area. It was great meeting everyone...but I was definitely feeling the jet lag!
This morning I woke up a bit late, and when I tried to open the door the handle was broken. I was stuck inside of my room--welcome to Africa. So, I stuck my head out the window and waited for someone to walk by, and thankfully one of the pilots pulled up a few minutes later and let me out. It's already been quite the adventure over here! The rest of the day I toured the facilities, and started my job training.
It's very different living here--there are tons of bugs that I'm hoping I'll get used to, I need to learn Swahili as soon as possible, and I have a lot to learn for my new job. Have I mentioned the driving yet? Well, I'm sure that will be it's own post soon.
I pray the Lord uses this time I have in Tanzania to break my heart for people, and to share His light and hope!
There's a lot more to write already...but I'll have to save it for a later time. Thanks again for the prayer support!
