Anyway, breakfast was at 7:45 and then we loaded up into 2 vans and headed to Living Hope headquarters to meet and train with the Life Skills Educators we'd be working with the following week.
We started our meeting with a few worship songs led by team member, Taylor. It was truly a heavenly experience heraing the voices joined together to praise ONE God. I closed my eyes and just let the South African and American voices wash over me. It brings tears to my eyes now and I remember it like it was yesterday. But other times it seems like a lifetime ago.
After training was over, the LSEs left and our team got a tour of the Living Hope facility. So much good comes from this awesome organization. The work that God has done through John and Avril Thomas is unbelievable.
After we finished at Living Hope, it was back tot he Team house. Since we had a bit of time before dinner, several of us decided to take a walk down to the beach. Yes, the Team House sits on the beach. Because South Africa is just entering into their Spring season, the water was way too cold to get into, but the view is absolutely breathtaking.
