Final Days in Tanzania

Final Days in Tanzania

We enjoyed a big trip to Ngorongoro Crater! We rode in four safari trucks.

The team made a few stops along the way for souvenir shopping before reaching the campground where we spent the night. The next morning we continued our drive into the crater. Including wildebeest, buffalo, impala, gazelle, elephant, zebra, hippo, crown cranes, ostrich, flamingo, serval, and our highlight… A lioness taking a nap near our trucks on top of a fallen tree! On Wednesday, we journey to Moshe for a souvenir shopping. Let’s just say that some of us are better at bartering than others!

Today, We cleared hundreds of rocks in the fields. Later on, the Massai village chairman arrived with a goat which he donated to our team! What an honor! Most of the team also watched, as they slaughtered and butchered the goat. They will be eating it later. We are looking forward to our bonfire tonight with our host missionaries as special guests sharing their testimonies. Miss Gay has s’mores ready for the team… (But they don’t know that yet!) We are planning to leave the base tomorrow at about 1 o’clock for the short trip to Kilimanjaro airport to begin our journey to debrief. We will appreciate your prayers for traveling mercies.

We asked each of the team members to share a short farewell…

Hi family! I miss you! During the Safari, I got to see so much of God’s beautiful creation. I am glad I got to spend the summer in Tanzania with a great team. I can’t wait to see everyone to share what I learned!- Julia

I will remember this trip my whole life. I have changed and feel different. My faith is being made stronger. It will feel weird going back. I know for sure I am going to miss this place. The last two days were full of new experiences. I have never bought it before itI will remember this trip my whole life. I have changed and feel different. My face is been made stronger. It will feel weird going back. I know for sure I am going to miss this place. The last two days were full of new experiences. I have never barter before but I feel that I did well, and I did not feel good after doing it. We were entertained by some national dancing and some cool acrobatics. The food was very good. I was so thrilled to have coffee, however I reaped what I sowed which was a night of no sleep. The next day we started our safari trip. As we were arriving, it was very foggy but it’s soon cleared up. Our best moments were when we saw a lion. We saw all but one of the big five. The Whole trip was really good, we saw lots of animals and an amazing piece of God’s creation… I will never forget it. - Noah
