Our Dear Friends and Family,
Greetings from Swaziland! We’ve been back in Swaziland for almost 2 months now. As Zwakele & I talked the other day, our time in America seemed so distant, like it just flew by. Being back in the States is predominantly a “working trip.” While we did take some time to rest, we were also incredibly busy. Even so, there was so much we didn’t get done, and many people we wished we could have spent time with. We really wished we would have had a few more weeks there…
Challenges Came Quickly! On the 24th of October, while driving on a rural road we punctured the oil pan on our car. We were far from home in a very deep rural area. When we broke down we really had that “middle of nowhere” feeling. There was no help around us for miles, it was a nice 100 degrees (sarcasm implied), and we ended up being stuck on the road for 6 hours!
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We gathered on Thanksgiving with about 20 other Americans and had a great meal together! It wasn't the same as being home with family, but it was the 2nd best possibility. Another praise we would like to share is Thandeka completing her preschool and getting ready to enter 1st grade in January. We are so happy for her, & can't believe she has grown so much! The picture below was taken on her Preschool Graduation:
God bless you all!
Dennis, Zwakele, Thandeka, & Busani Brock
