I’m Going to Africa!

I’ve started a new blog to announce my trip to Africa this summer. As I prepare for the trip, and (more importantly) while I’m there, I’ll use it as the location to document my experiences.

But I need your help.

Yes, you.

I’ve set a personal fundraising goal in connection with the trip, and need your help to achieve it. 100% of your donation will go straight to volunteer service projects aimed at helping Zambian orphans: building homes, planting gardens, teaching English and math, etc.

Please help me meet my goal!

    Connor,
    Two of the languages of Zambia are “Bemba” and “Shona”.

    If you can fit them in your luggage and make it within weight restrictions, get some church material in those languages, and the same material in English.

    Shona: Book of Mormon, and ‘Gospel Fundamentals’
    Bemba: Joseph Smith Testimony pamphlet, and Gospel Fundamentals’.

    Make sure you buy as many English as you do in the foreign language.

    People love gifts! See if you can give them out. I bet you will.

    Hi Connor,

    I hope you will get back to me on this issue.
    I don’t really want to go into a lot of details about myself but i pray you will do me a small favor when you get to africa.

    I have no kids nor do i want to raise one but i really want a family. That i don’t have either. But I don’t want to send money to those charity things becasue i don’t want to get ripped off. So i was trying to find someone who is going to africa who might find me a family that i could write and help out. I’m not a rich person at all but i’ve heard our money can go along way over there so if you could find a family that spoke a little english so they could write me now and then i would love it if you could get me thier contact information so i could make sure they have food clothes and so on. I do love children even though i choose not to have any.
    Anyways you have fun over there and i hope you will find me someone to write and get to know.
    Thanks
    Carrie
