In a little over a week, I will be travelling with nurse/wife back to eSwatini for my second visit. I am excited and anxious.
We will be staying primarily at the El Shaddai Children’s Home to take care of business and see our kids. With Cynthia being director of Compassionate Life, and Compassionate Life being the primary fund provider for El Shaddai, most of our trip will be spent there.
However, Cynthia decided we would take a short break during or time in Africa and visit Hlane Royal National Park, where she signed us up to run a 5K. . . . yes, she signed us up to run a 5K through an African big game preserve . . . .
Now, I don’t run. Cynthia doesn’t run. . . . but for some reason, she felt it was a good idea to sign us up to run 5 Kilometers. . . . through wild animal infested wilderness. Do the losers get eaten?!!! Because I’m a fifty year old guy who hasn’t run a total of 5K in his life. . . I think I’m going to sneak sleeping pills into Cynthia’s coffee that morning. If anyone is going to get eaten by some African beast, it should be the person who thought it was a good idea in the first place 🙂
