South Africa: Day 1
Hello from Johannesburg, South Africa!
Our team has all safely arrived, culminating in the 4 ladies traveling from Johnson City meeting trip leader Larry Nees at the Johannesburg Airport tonight around 8pm our time. All of us have spent at least 1+ days traveling, and us ladies got to experience the second-longest flight in the world - Atlanta to Johannesburg, with a flight time clocking in at 15 hours. All of our travel went smoothly and the journey was comfortable.
We are settled in and ready to crash at our hotel for the night and are greatly looking forward to experiencing a South African church service tomorrow morning. From there we will travel to Hammanskraal, settle into our lodging there, meet with our contact from Hope of Glory Ministry, and finalize a few plans for the week.
We truly believe God is eager to do great things here - whether that be through us, in us, or both. Please pray that we can be attentive to the Holy Spirit and His leading, and bold and faithful in the Lord. He has been teaching all of us flexibility over the past weeks and months of preparation, and we are ready and waiting to be used by Him over the next 6 days, whatever that may look like.
Stay tuned later this week for more stories and pictures!
