I would have loved to have seen the Yankees lose in a growing rivalry with the Rangers, however I had a meeting with the rest of the Tanzania Mission Trip team. The game was definitely worth missing, I had such a great time tonight getting to meet everyone! I met a lot of people and I hope I can learn all their names... Mix a horrible memory with a lot of new faces and they'll be lucky if I guess a gender-correct name!
Tonight in the meeting we discussed the our day-to-day schedule for the duration of the trip. To be safe, Scott said we should arrive at the airport three hours before our flight. I'd be surprised if I'm not there four or five hours before takeoff. I love airports. They have an excited energy that you can't see anywhere else. There are people coming and going. Some leaving loved ones and others greeting those they haven't seen in years. I love it. I could sit in a terminal and people-watch all day. We depart June 15 from DFW and fly to Amsterdam.

We will have about a two hour layover in Amsterdam. I was kinda hoping for a longer one, but that's ok. After boarding for Africa we fly to Entebbe, Uganda then bus to a Guest House in Kampala.

Sunday we will be divided into two teams and visit churches and give our testimonies. The pastors that are going will be preaching as well. I hope they've been studying their Swahili! (I'm kidding... That's what the translators are there for).
The rest of the week will include a Leadership Conference and visiting schools, villages and lead Revival services. We will be doing other things, but I'm not real sure what those things are yet.
Monday, June 27, we are to travel three hours to Bukoba. Here we will shop, relax, and cross Lake Victoria. If you will refer to the above map, the top right arrow is in the middle of Lake Victoria. Bukoba is on the West side of the lake, South of the Uganda border. Tuesday through Thursday consist of a Safari in the Serengeti. Check out the link, it's really cool. I'm not gonna lie, I'm kinda looking forward to this. I'm not into game hunting so I hope I don't see any of that. It's just not my thing. However, I think I could stand to see a "cheetah take down a gazelle" (with a British guy narrating like on the National Geographic Channel).
On Thursday we depart from Kilimanjaro for Amsterdam. A three hour layover this time, then home to bring in the new month.
It's been a long day, good night!!
