When In South Africa…

..do as the South Africans do?!
South Africans eat Mopane worms; therefore I tried Mopane worms. I am pretty proud of my worm eating abilities. For a girl who can barely handle eating a garden tomato because the taste and texture weird's her out, this was a pretty big achievement. My neighbor was even proud of me. 

Lots of wormy love,

Having Light .... Pass It On!

A few months ago I was more than privileged to be able to travel to the country of Lesotho. For those of you who do not know, Lesotho it is a landlocked country, completely enclosed by South Africa. My YAGM group and I spent time hiking through a small rural village, learning about schools, the countries history, culture and the poverty that has stricken this small country.

While I was mesmerized by the beauty surrounding me and the time spent with the locals, I was also feeling a great sense of pride. I left the country feeling so proud of my friends and professors at Wittenberg University who have given up weeks of their summers and winter breaks to make a difference in the communities here.  I am so encouraged by their passions for Lesotho and pray that this passion to serve continues, both in and out of this beautiful country.
