Hi everyone, this first update is a little later than planned, to make up for that please accept this picture of a wildebeest and zeebra as payment.
Anyway, we made it to Joburg as planned on Tuesday night after a day of travel capped off with a 15 hour flight from Atlanta. On Wednesday we met with Phil Kuntson, Regional Program Assistant for Southern Africa, ELCA who was very helpful in understanding more about the various Diocese in South Africa, and especially the Cape Orange Diocese.
We then traveled to the Apartheid Museum, where the history of apartheid, is presented bare, without leaving anything glossed over or omitted. I'll have more on that visit later (once we are somewhere with a little better upload speed.)
Today, our last day in the Johannesburg area, we went North to the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Where the above picture was taken. No selfies with buffalo here though, there are plenty of signs reminding you that staying in the car is a pretty good idea. (More pictures when we get to better internet)
I'm sure we'll have much more from Pilanesberg and the Apartheid Museum, but tomorrow we begin the trip out to Kimberly to meet with the Diocese staff and Bishop Bowles.
