Nice To Meet You!

Photo Source: oooh.oooh

When I look at the map of all of the locations of our blog readers  (right over there in the column on the right side) I am amazed that there are so many visitors from all over the world!

I would love to put a name with those little red dots.  Please take a minute to introduce yourself in the comment section below!


  1. Jenny, I'm TexasHeather from SL forums, aka The Reader in blog land, at Musings on the Move.

    I'm one of the Brazil dots, probably showing up as Sao Paulo. : )

  2. Hej! (hello in Swedish)

    I should have introduced myself a long time ago so I think this blog post was meant for me :)! I visited your blog for your first stay in South Africa and somehow found this one. Can't quite remember how. I really enjoy reading about what you are doing in Rustenburg - the children love to join me when there are nice photos of the Big Five on your blog.

    We met Lincolm briefly in Pretoria a few years ago when we became parents to our third South African born child. She will be six later this spring and is an absolute darling!

    Praying for you and your family as well as the people you are serving ... and thank you for writing - it means a lot to us!

  4. Hello to all of you! Thanks for replying.

    @The Reader - I always think of you as "Texas Heather in Brazil" LOL!

    @Maria - It is so nice to meet you! Thank you for your note. Bringing the babies from the shelter to meet their parents was the best part of our job when we worked at the shelter. I absolutely loved being a part of it, I likened it to being in the delivery room when a baby is born. Such an incredibly amazing and moving experience! Thank you for your prayers!

    @Missus Wookie - Waves from South Africa right back atcha!
