We're Headed for the Bush!

While in the midst of a coffee crisis at Wimpy yesterday, David and I met a woman, Sharon Macdonald, who works with an organization called the Hinterland Learners' Resource Network. The group works with native children doing early childhood education, and native families teaching life skills, community development, etc. She is from Canada and is based in a village outside of Ntabankulu, which is outside of Kokstad. 

So...we're headed for the bush! We are going to meet up with Sharon tomorrow and spend some time working with her in her village. We don't know how long we will stay there and haven't made any commitments, but we won't have access to internet (or electricity/running water - yikes!) while we are there. There are internet cafes in Ntabankulu, so we should be able to check it intermittently but just not constantly after tomorrow afternoon.

All that to say, don't worry about us if you don't hear from us for a little while. Think of us when you use your indoor plumbing or electricity, and please keep us and the people we will be working with in your thoughts and prayers!
