If you could start your life again, what would you choose to be?

Group trip next year

The Frontier mission project organisation which I’m doing my trip to Tanzania through are now looking for group leaders to take 5 or more people at a time out to some projects around the world.  Things seem to be falling in to place more and more.  This is definitely what I was meant to do with my life!  Hopefully I’ll be able to lead a group next year.  This year though I just need to get the experience myself of going to a project.  Patience is not one of my strong points but on this occasion I need to take it a step at a time.

I’m very nervous going it alone for this first trip but actually it will probably be the best thing and it depends on who you talk to about whether it’s a good idea or not.  Being so domesticated in the UK these days, I’m nervous of all the usual things in far flung lands – the lack of health care, crime and mugging, kidnapping… you name it, everything has gone through my head but then just to put things in to perspective for me, I met a lady who had just come back from a 3 month biking excursion through multiple countries of Africa from top to bottom with her 10 year old daughter and asked me what on earth I was worrying about!  She’s actively encouraging me to go alone to get my confidence back.  Although I think she’s probably a little too comfortable, actually that was probably just what I needed.  Especially when you think that the foreign office advice in some countries to their citizens when travelling to the UK is, do not to drink the water!
