It really does seem that this is for real. Our plans are to leave here late March 2012, to live and work in Kasulu, in the Diocese of Western Tanganyika.
So far we have :
- Bought an Africa-mobile - a second hand Nissan Terrano which we will ship out. Anything less won't cope with the local roads.
- Started learning Swahili on Rosetta Stone, and hope at least to have the linguistic skills to buy some oranges at the market.
- Sent off all our forms fro work permits, and a large amount of money to go with them, and are now trusting them (prayerfully) to African bureaucracy and timing.
- Worried quite a lot about how to clear and pack up a house - sent a bag of paperbacks to the church fayre, but otherwise not made much more progress.
- And prayed a lot.
