This past weekend, I went on a should-be-7-hours-but-took-us-10-hours road-trip up the coast to a little village just outside of Inhambane called Tofo. I went with Laura, another missionary, and 4 visitors. As we drove up the coast, I was in awe of the beautiful creation all around. Multiple times, as i looked out the window of the car, I thought to myself, "is this really my home? Do i really live in this beautiful country?" Our God is so creative!!!
2 of the visitors that went with us, Dana and Jonah, are professional soccer players. They've been looking around Mozambique for possible locations to start an orphanage focused on training kids in soccer and surfing. While in Tofo, we met Joao, a Mozambican teen who surfs. He became our tour guide for the weekend and showed us a couple of amazing beach spots. It was so amazing how, even on a weekend getaway, the Lord gave us someone to lavish love on. Dana was really able to speak truth into his life as they surfed together.
