People sometimes ask why I enjoy going to South Africa so much. There are a number of reasons but the first one that always springs to mine is ANONYMITY!!! With 30 little people around, not to mention the whole rest of the center, I really enjoy some time on my own to just be me without all the expectations.
A close second would be PEACE and QUIET! And that's what I find in abundance at Mercy Air! It's an aviation ministry located on a large, working farm. One aspect of their ministry is to provide a peaceful respite for missionaries and that they do VERY well!!
Here I am upon arrival in my favorite suite, The Eagle's Nest! It's upstairs in the main house and just feels like a hideaway.
My favorite part of my favorite place is, of course, the bathtub!!! With enough candles to read by and Harry Connick, Jr. providing the soundtrack, it's bliss!
I sleep in the big bed! And I love the African decor!
I take my breakfast here on the porch.
A daytime view of the bath and kitchenette.
Upon arrival . . .
Springtime in September!
A shot of a couple of their planes.
See the little doggie? He so wanted me to follow him down that path!
The pool is a fantastic perk in the heat!
The place is full of friendly dogs!
And it's so lush, I just love all the greenery.
Another Springtime shot.
And to leave you with, one of the local monkeys!
