My mom arrived on Tuesday and today we took her to Pilanesberg.   Here are a few pictures from the day.

 We saw quite a few hippos, something that we've never seen close up before.  They are usually sitting mostly in the water with just their eyes and ears showing.

We saw so many wildebeests.  My mom joked that on Sundays all the animals draw to see which day they would be out, and today was the Wildebeest day.

One more of the many, many wildebeest we saw.

A black backed jackal on the road.

We stopped for ice cream and there were monkeys everywhere begging for food.

Two rhinos

Giraffe and beautiful scenery.





Cute kids

My mom, Kendi and Madison

  1. I can not even imagine the joy you and your family are bringing to our Jesus~ Wow, I wish I had lots of dollars to help support this wonderful gift you guys have! I will remember you in my prayers. So happy your Mom could come and visit. Your gift of love, peace and gentleness came from that very precious lady :)
    Take care and may our Lord continue to richly bless your family and the sweet people of your ministry, those precious little children :)
