Decision to volunteer

1 May

Deciding to spend 9 months of selfless service in Africa was an easy decision-probably just as easy a decision as it was to sell my car to finance the trip and my expenses there. Though a big sacrifice, certainly something i’d do again.

However, I have to admit that deciding to bath in murky and most likely belharzia infected water,  was a tougher decision! Nevertheless, I didn’t want to be an “mlungu” (white boy) and not partake of the laughter and fun that came along with bathing each morning with the friends-though at times I seemed to be the center of jokes! So I jumped right on in and shared the small stream with the local village (and their livestock) for bathing and washing.
