So, today I had to go to the doctor to figure out which vaccinations I have to take before going to Zimbabwe. And now my arm is very sore!! I was expecting a "consultation" as they called it when I made my appointment and it turned into taking 2 shots and getting 2 prescriptions for the pill form of the other 2 vaccinations. I had to take Polio, Tetanus, (already had my Hep A & B thank God!) and I have to take medication for both Malaria and Typhoid. Luckily I don't have to take anything for yellow fever since the area I will be in doesn't require it. Jeeze!!

As crazy as it may sound, however, the shots have made me super excited for my trip!! Each step along the way makes it more and more real that I am actually finally getting to go! Next on my list of things to do:

1. I have to read a book called, "When Helping Hurts". The whole team going with me has to read it and we're all going to discuss it together at our December meeting.
2. figure out how in the world I am going to pay for this trip!! eeek. But I know God will somehow provide.
3. keep on praying and praying and praying!!

Thanks for your support!!
