Safari

Mari Beth Poor

The best way to describe our day of rest which was a safari is tell you two stories:

1) The highlight of the day was literally and I mean LITERALLY being in the middle of a herd of elephants. They surrounded our cars as if we were merely part of the landscape. It was truly one of the most incredible experiences ever. We saw elephants from 5 months old (which I'm still trying to figure out how to fit into my suitcase...) up to 70 years old. They are amazing beasts.

2) We saw 4 lions eat their fresh kill. We felt very sorry for the warthog they were consuming (poor guy never saw it coming), but it was surreal to see the lions eating in their natural habitat.

Tomorrow we go to worship at Bishop Leonard Mwizarubi's church. Some of the team are leading the children's program, and I (Mari Beth) will be preaching. We appreciate your prayers.

Enjoy some of the beautiful animals we saw today.

 If you look closely, you can see blood on her cheek. Poor warthog. Simba got him.

 This guy was all by himself and struggling a bit since he only had one tusk which he probably lost from a fight.
