Me at one of the Harrismith street signs to prove I was there! Also, will send this into the local Smithfield Herald to do an article about Thrive Africa
Well today was a travel back to Johannesburg Day.  Stopped for a few pictures and some lunch on the way back with my new friend Jennifer (staff memer from Trive Africa)

The fun began when I got back to the airport and got my rental car. The trip from the airport for Rooderpoort started off just great.... until I missed a turn and wound up in downtown Johannesburg in the heart of rush hour. Definitely not the place to be when you have NO IDEA where you are! Luckily I had the contact information for a friend here that I met during my travels last year and was able to get turned around and back to the place I needed to be.  Thank you Jesus!!!  I guess being in downtown Johannesburg was not so bad.... but having to drive through Soweto was not a good place to be.

But, the Lord came through like He always does and got me safely to the hotel.

The rest of the evening was quiet and peaceful.  It was very nice to be in a warm room with a big comfortable bed!  I was really tired of the bunk military beds with hard mattresses that I was constantly trying NOT to fall off of in the middle of the night!  I slept like a baby
