Yes the headline is correct. We are leaving South Africa. We are being transferred to Namibia.
At the moment we know that everyone says you will LOVE IT! I also know I will be in the heat
come Wednesday. Elder Richins and I are excited for this new adventure and looking forward to
the challenges and opportunities we will have. It is bitter/sweet. We love the people here in George.
When you work closely with people for 7 months they become like family. Here are a few pictures
of the people and things we will leave behind.
|When they see the white car the kids start running. We can be two blocks away|
|Elder Richins has started bringing a garbage bag so the kids can pick up garbage before they receive their sucker. We especially have a soft spot for the little ones.|
|We literally ran into these beautiful birds as we rounded a corner in the industrial area. They were pecking away in the street and the roadside.|
|I know that red bottle brush is common in California, but I had never seen pink before.|
|This was a very overcast day but the kids were having great fun in the waves. I will miss the ocean in Namibia, we are going to be inland.|
|We will miss these friends. These are the women I have the opportunity to learn to read English. We had them over for a Family Home Evening and game night.|
|We will miss the uniqueness of Thembuletu|
|If you look closely you will see they are sitting on chairs in the back of this truck|
|The yummy meats sold on the street and very glad I only had to eat it once.|
|No it isn't Elder Richins and I. Though it does look fun. Just another sign that it is spring|
|New life, new beginnings, proud parents.|
|O the joy of having to set up a new banking account and learning a new money system. Thank goodness the exchange rate is the same.|
|This young boy was chasing this pig around the corner as we drove by.|
|/Do we have any architects or city planners in the blogasphere? If you missed the road by a foot you would be in the side of this house. We pass this house at least once a week and have often asked our selves the question. Is this really a good idea?|
What new adventures await us as we travel to Namibia? Only time will tell and my camera.. Have a great week.
Until next time.
Love, Elder and Sister Richins
