Senegal, here we come in just one month's time.
Here's what I know:
I have been successfully vaccinated with typhoid (again) and yellow fever. I'm forever good with Hepatitis A & B. Tetanus is still current.
Senegal is in the hugely large continent of Africa, specifically on the north west coast.
A friend & I will fly up to D.C. to meet up with the rest of the team (from a church in Pennsylvania) and fly into Dakar, Senegal (the capital). That's January 7th.
The goal of course, is to try our hardest to stay awake the whole first day, fighting jet lag, which could be difficult since we arrive at 7am (Jan 8). Soon thereafter, we will head out of Dakar away from the coast toward a city that to me sounds like "chess". (But allowing for mis-hearing it could really be anything.) And the real work happens in villages outside of that city.
The point of the trip across the pond is medical. Yes, I am non-medical. So the point of my trip with those medical people is to help in any way that I can and to be a blessing to whomever I can.
We are there for a week & 1/2, then depart January 17 (Sunday) at 2am (Dakar time) arriving at Dulles at 6am (EST). Linda & I will say our good-byes to our new friends from Penn and hit the air heading home.
I pretty sure that is the extent to what I know. Well, all that stuff above and this: God will be glorified. And that is good enough for me.
(If you want to help financially, give me a holler)
