Mozambique Beach

Ah, here is my first attempt at posting a picture. (and I'm struggling...perhaps Ben will help me in the morning...right now it is 1:30 a.m.)

I’m excited to share with you our first family trip to Mozambique. We went for just a few days with the Rehmeyers and the Poes (another missionary family—great people), and stayed in cabins in a very remote area. The beach was amazingly beautiful.

We climbed on reefs and caught crabs and jelly fish. The kids collected many beautiful shells. The nights were cool enough to warrant jackets and bonfires over which we roasted marshmallows and made SMORES (Africa-style since we can’t get graham crackers or normal marshmallows—but it was fun anyway!).

Thank You, Lord, for this fantastic experience. It was a much-needed getaway as the pace has now picked up significantly. We embrace it all.
