A video was recently posted to YouTube by World Vision Canada about Nkayi. I had no part in making this video. But I have seen some of the places that are shown in this video.  I have probably waved or said “hi” to some of these children. People may have seen me post statuses to..

I’ve been asked a handful of times what the hardest part about being here has been, and I’ve given a few different answers. -There is a difference in the way time is valued, and as such, I’ve ended up sitting and waiting around for two hours. -I miss my family. -I don’t like using blair..

Salibonani.  Ngiyathaba Ukukwazi! That means: Hello, how are you?, Pleased to meet you!

Nkayi, Zimbabwe.  That’s where I am right now, and where I will be based for the next six months.  Nkayi is about 600km Zimbabwe’s capitol, Harare, and roughly 150km from Bulawayo (which is where most people head for the weekends).  The population for this project is 21,215.  These are some different facts about the community. ..

I am done my first week and a half, so I figured I would share some things I have learned and/or experienced. The 24th was my first day, and I went to the World Vision office in Bulawayo.  I’ve been finding myself, even still, wanting to work outside instead of inside.  It’s so beautiful outside..
