In a very real way, I went to Tanzania this week. No, there was no 2,500 hour plane trip, no lost luggage, no jet lag, but still, I was there.
I stepped inside tiny little decorated houses, saw love grow through simple playground games, watched fingernails being painted a lovely shade of blue and had a first hand glimpse of the hope slowly moving through these villages where God is very present. Oh, and each night while I was there I cried buckets of tears, enough, in fact, for my husband to ask, more than once "are you sure you're OK back there?"
If you have a few extra minutes this weekend, you can go, too. Grab a cup of coffee and if you are anything like me, tissues, and read through the posts I linked to up above.
