My favorite part of the trip was visiting Elizabeth. She has a great smile and is making high marks. She is happy to show off her new dress. this will be the third year that I sponsor Elizabeth. She had invited us to her home. There are not enough words to express our gratitude.
This meal is a great honor. Her father works in the Tanzanite mines. The work is unspeakable grueling. He works 80 days on and 80 days off. Earning $1/day. To have these drinks and meal for us brought us to silence. It reflects how giving and how appreciative they are.
You can barely see my father sitting in the picture. The young boy is Elizabeths' brother.
This was so endearing. Elizabeth and her family walked us down the path from her home. Her mother with a smile as big as Africa itself. We only spent the day with them yet it was hard to 'let go'.
Elizabeth knows that I will return.....
