The Wakely's have been an amazing blessing to me during the last year. They have accepted me into their family and shared their lives with me. Each week I am refreshed by being able to speak English with their children. It makes a HUGE difference. I LOVE our Mozambican babies but some days am just too exhausted to work at speaking Portuguese and ensuring they understand me. But every Thursday morning I know I can walk into the Wakely's house to cuddles, adorable blond-headed girls, and lots of craft fun!
A few weeks ago the Wakely's decided to blessed me with a day trip to Bilene to say thank you for helping with their girlies. Bilene is a lagoon that is about 2 hours from the center. It has gorgeous white sand beaches, blue waters, and is a favorite vacation spot for many South Africans who are looking for a rest! I have heard about it many times in my almost 2 years here in Moz, but I have never found the free time to go and see it for myself. It was a day filled with laughter, long chats, adorable children, sunshine, and peace! Take a look!
