We met for our final time as a team before boarding the airplane together. What an air of excitement in the air. Twenty-two of our Riverwood family ready to hit the air and make our way back to connect with our family at Enaleni & Bhobokazi. We have been praying a ton and preparing ourselves for this coming two weeks for many months.
Now, we have 27 duffle bags loaded to the brim and full of all of the care packages, dresses, soccer jerseys and many other supplies we are bringing with us for nearly 300 children that are represented at the care points. How inspiring to see all of the time & love that has gone into preparing the care package for the children we sponsor!
Something we can also celebrate is that we got word from Delta, the airline we are flying with, that they have waived the fees for the extra bags we will need to bring. This will save us more than $1500 in cargo. Thanks Delta!!
At this points, I imagine that most of us are busy scrambling to pack our own suitcases, run last minute errands, and double check our lists before meeting at the airport tomorrow morning. We can’t wait!
Jon, Carolyn & the 2017 Swaziteam!
