The first thing I remember seeing upon departure from the Johannesburg airport was a billboard for a South African travel agency boasting the words, “You call it Africa.

We’ve been away from wifi (and electricity) for a couple of days, but we’re back in Mbabane/Emafini tonight. All I can say is “Wow!” after our evening debrief. Our experiences over the last couple of days have ignited such an incredible passion for the spiritual & physical well-being of the people we’ve met along the way. So, this may come as a really long post (or 2-3 separate posts) because all on the team have been writing their thoughts and prayers to...
