The Pinnacle on my birthday!
And ziplining! :D

I know, I know. I haven't posted anything in a while. So this is a catch up blog.

Above: The municipality workers went on strike. Their job was to pick up trash so to show that South Africa should appreciate them they threw it all in the streets. They did end up getting their raises though and the rubish was picked up.
The pictures above the above picture were taken on my 15th birthday (July 28th) We went to God's Window, a beautiful lookout point, and another place like it. Oh and did I mention I got to go ziplining? ;) It was amazing!
Some more highlights of the last 2 months:
We have had many teams come and go, and it's great to be able to build relationships with them all! The only bummer is that it seems like they're here just long enough to get to know them and then they have to leave again! But we all still enjoy them.
I have applied and taken entrance exams to a school nearby us. The name of the school is Penryn and it's a very nice school. We are still waiting to hear back from them but I'm confident that I did pretty well on the exams.
The New Hope guys get here today! We are SO very excited to have some of our friends come over to visit for a week. We hope they have a life changing experience!
Ryan and Amanda have arrived safely and are completely settled in to the experience and their new home. It's a blessing to have them here and great for me to be able to have some fun with my sister!
Those are the basic highlights from the past 2 months! I will try to be more diligent with my posting. Thanks for all the support and love!
