Highlight of Safari was being 3 ft from a male & female lion who was resting in the shadow of our truck. Elephants, zebras, giraffes, water buffalo, hippo, gazelles, impalas, rhino, birds galore and a monkey who stole our sandwich! A two day adventure up winding, narrow roads that took our stomachs away and down, down to the crater where the animals reside–photos to come later.
Sunday, Feb 5th We wish everyone who has supported ICBD could have seen the precious faces of each person as they dip their cup into a barrel of clean, clear water from our first borehole! The community brought music, dance, appreciation and great love to celebrate this project that has bridged the Village of Uru to the USA. The words of dedication included the commitment and persistence through adversity that brought phase one of this project to fruition. Barbara Joye shared how we have become one family, brothers and sisters, with one common goal. Jubilation, heart-felt love, and joyful tears came for each of us, as our car pulled slowly away to the sound of ongoing song and we came to understand fully the impact of this day. The faces of love and gratitude, especially from the Grandmothers, will forever be in our hearts and memories.
