Jambo!

Jambo! That’s Swahili for hello, currently the only word I know how to say in Swahili, but I’m told English is spoken by many of the people of East Africa.

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog. I have all sorts of reservations when it comes to sharing my thoughts on the internet, but my hope is that by attempting to keep this blog while I explore Africa, it will keep you all a little closer to me as I wander.

My interest in Africa began when I was in third grade, and now, 15 years later, I am finally going to set my feet on the continent.

I cannot make any promises as to how often I will update this blog, but I hope to do it frequently.

See you soon.

    To a wonderful adventure! Lions, Tigers and Bears – Oh, my! (Wait – that’s the Land of Oz… at least “Lions and Tigers!”) 🙂 xoxo Aunt Mary

    Happy travels, Matty! Have a safe and rewarding trip. I look forward to your blog stories (especially now that Emily’s are finished).

    Jambo. I will be following your Blog as closely as I followed Emily’s. Hoping you have the best of experiences. It was great to see you before you set off on your adventure.

  5. Matthew, Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. The Holy Spirit is with you allowing you to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ. What an honor! What a resposibility!. You are in our prayers with love. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help or if you want me to send some books for you to give to the children…Maybe Gramma’s Glasses would be appropriate.
