Welcome to my blog! This is the place where I will share my adventures, being stationed in Worcester, South Africa. It will be personal, but I hope that it will be inspiring at the same time, as well as informative about the work I am part of. I will give you small pieces a few times every week and you may check the updates as often as you like! I am also happy about comments!
I arrived one Saturday in mid-January to Cape Town preparing for the world cup. I had heard that the temperature was around 40 degrees celsius - which was pretty different from beautiful snowy Finland. But it has been alright. More annoying than that is the Internet access and phone system... But I would rather have that than meeting a black mamba.
At the airport I received a warm welcome when the officer saw my visa.
”Oooooh, YWAM Worcester, I knwo them!”
”Oh, do you?”
”Yeeeees! But have you heard that they have a black mamba in Worcester?”
”No, nobody has told me that.”
”Aaaaaaah. You must be careful!”
”Ok, miss Finland. I’ll see you at YWAM in Worcester!”
It was a good start.
