    The video they are showing teens and the other they are showing pre teens, are both compelling. DD REALLY wants to earn money for them. Bless you for whatever you can send.

    Glad you're back! And yes, I'd say the parental fears are not over-reactions by any means. Heck, I was crying at the airport the first time we shipped my friend off to Uganda 'cause I was so worried about her. The lack of communication whilst they're in the other country doesn't help at all either.

    Rock Center has the Facebook dad and his daughter on tonight. COOL. Can't wait to hear this.

    31 million people have now seen that video. That seems like a lot.

    Thanks

    I received a voicemail from the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago today about doing volunteer work up there. I sent in my application to them last August, so I was shocked to hear something from them today. I really wish they would have called sooner so that I would've been able to write that actually have field experience with marine mammals on my resume. Ah well, its a start.

Now she is old enough to make her own decisions and go whether they are for it or not, but at this point everyone supports her. It is a complicated and scary process, but it has changed her life so much for the better. She can talk your ear off about LRA violence for hours, that girl knows more about than I think some Africans do, lol. She is looking into going to the Congo next time, it would be her first time not in Uganda. The pictures she has shown me from her trips are unbelievable- they live with the bare minimum. It's so sad.
    She sounds like a great person.

    She is, I love her to pieces. She is getting married in a few months, I was shocked when she started asking me advice about going to Disney for their honeymoon. I was sure she had planned on spending it in Africa. I know that its not at all the ideal honeymoon location, but she is so passionate about it that I never expected her to consider taking a trip somewhere else. It will be the first "real" vacation she has been on in over 15 years- I'm happy that she will finally be able to be the one getting spoiled for a week instead of caring for others as she is used to.

    True, one thing most on any form of humanitarian or mission field say-they HAVE to recharge, have a break, get their minds and bodies away from the situation, in order to go back and be effective. Bless her efforts, and great that you get to help plan a Disney Honeymoon.
