We were in South Africa for 10 days right after Christmas for our older boys to attend MK camp and for Charlie, Luke, Abby and me to attend a prayer retreat with other missionaries from Mozambique, Angola and the Indian Ocean Islands. We stayed over for a few days to do some shopping, visit an amusement park and visit with friends. It was a great getaway.
