Land ho!

The organization I will be working for in the fall, Small Steps for Compassion, has found the property that God set aside for them. It's in Usa River, Tanzania. Right outside of Arusha. (here's a map). Things had gotten a bit crazy for awhile with the search for land, it's a long story that I would love to tell you about in person sometime.

The great thing is this property looks wonderful! I haven't been there to see it yet but I was in the area last fall and I liked it. It is 11 acres, has mango, guava (my favorite!) avocado and macadamia nut trees! There are also corn and coffee plants. A fish pond, a wall with gates already built, There are so many varieties of flowering plants, trees and bushes! Lots of colourful birds and a view of Mt Meru and Kilimanjaro on a clear day.

Beautiful isn't it?

I don't know what all God has in store for me and the children of Tanzania. But I trust and will take life one step at a time following where He leads.
