Africa Update- how I'm preparing

I totally feel like I'm on Reading Rainbow right here...(at the end of the video)!

Today I left to have my last vaccination before going to Africa.  Am I glad to be done with shots!  Now comes the fun task of packing!  Check out the video for some fun updates about our mission trip to Africa and to find out what is on my reading list before I leave!  (If you can't see the video because you are an email subscriber, just click through to the website to view).
