The Last one! – April 12, 2016

Currently I’m sitting on a couch in Winnipeg, playing Mario Kart Wii, watching Kate frantically finish her speech for grad, eating potato chips, and breathing in the fresh crisp Canadian air (when I’m outside of course). We’ve been in Canada a couple days now, and I personally already miss the warmth of South Africa!
South Africa was an amazing experience. We got to learn and grow so much in knowing ourselves, God, and the world – to try to describe our full experience would take a novel. It was a challenging year filled with so much fun and adventure! To try to give you a sense of our experience, we had everyone give a statement or quote on either where they’ve seen God, what they’re going to miss most about the community, a highlight, where they’ve grown, a quote from someone, or anything else. We also wanted to showcase everyone’s beautiful faces to go with it, because why not? Hope you enjoy!
So, overall, we had an AMAZING trip. We learned a lot about ourselves and who God has created us to be. We have seen first hand how God works everywhere and anywhere in the world, how He didn’t miss any part of the earth in where He works and created beauty. We learned about grace, forgiveness, the “project behind the project”, and how God is always there – we just have to ask. Everyone has their own individual experience and story, so be sure to ask whoever you see from Outtatown for stories. It is indescribable, challenging, adventurous, chill, and impactful. …Why you don’t just come as a student so you can understand fully? But, thank you again for your prayers and support. God is good!
