Hi! Hallo! Olá! Ocaminé!
This month we’ve been bouncing around the African continent a bit. We’ve gained more stories than we could possibly fit in one newsletter and seen and made more friends than we can squeeze in here without breaking the internet! It’s been wonderful! Here are a few of the highlights…
We kicked off the month with a beautiful visit to Nkulu after our teammates left Angola for a visit to the US. It was our first time visiting the Mucubal by ourselves and things went really well! Our kids even started speaking their first words in Mucubal!
Precious, precious, precious! (more about Nkulu here)
Then the timing seemed fit to make a trip to Windhoek, Namibia (a three day drive away), where we had a growing list of things to do. In Angola, we don’t have access to dentists, optometrists, specialist doctors etc and we were definitely due for some check-ups! Thankfully, we’ve now made connections in Windheok where we’ll be able to get the family’s routine health needs taken care of for the future.
And there you have the condensed version of our month! Time doesn’t allow to tell of the crazy storm we camped through, the sweet encounters we had with friends on our travels who “just happened” to be in town, the insane tooth infection that struck the day after we saw the dentist, the chance encounter with the tribe I’ve been dreaming about for two years, or the day we wanted to leave Windhoek, but had to beat the dynamite detonations that would close the only road north!
Tell us about your month! We would love to hear!
David, Fiona, Faith & Ivy
