My Oldest is now in Botswana!

I can hardly believe that my oldest child Kadie is now in Botswana! So far away, and celebrating her 25th birthday today!
It has been just killing me not to be able to talk to her, or wish her a happy Birthday, but just hearing the latest news is like music to this mommas ears!
Below is the latest update for their ministry team.
Safe arrival of the South Africa team! -:- From the Fall DTS 2010 blog.

Update from Stephanie Stafford, Africa Team Leader on Saturday 1-15-2011:

We arrived safely in Rustenburg late Thursday evening (your afternoon!) Since then we have been adjusting to the time & culture, & preparing to set off for Botswana [on Sunday Jan 16th]. The team will split into 2 groups until the 25th. During that time our ministry will include door to door evangelism, house visits with HIV/Aids patients, feedings, VBS & teaching in a local church. We are all really excited for what is ahead!

“Pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.” – Colossians 4:3-4

Although we are told there will be internet cafes available, we are unsure how reliable they will be. We will try our best to keep you updated on all that God is doing, but [communication] may be [limited] until our return to South Africa on January 25th!

Update from Stephanie Stafford, Africa Team Leader on Monday 1-17-2011:

My team arrived in Botswana yesterday & spent the evening there. This morning we traveled 4 hours north to another city. Tasha´s team stayed in SA Sunday & traveled this morning to Botswana where they will stay the week. Tasha is working with a woman who is starting a new work in Botswana, she is AWESOME & I think the

team is going to have a great time with her. My team took public transportation it went great, and the Pastor we are working with did his YWAM schools in Zimbabwe & is hosting our team in his home. His family is wonderful. They have quite a busy schedule for us, but everyone is handling it well.

Tasha will return to SA Monday of next week, and my team on Tuesday.

    Ah Barb, this is amazing. You must have read this after we talked today. I’m happy for you and totally understand the agony of not being able to talk to your precious daughter.
