I hope this blog serves to keep people updated about my whereabouts and brings some encouragement to those who read it! Currently, I am preparing for a trip to Tanzania mid-December 2013 through mid-January 2014. I am going with Africa Inland Mission and will be joining a team ministering to the Rangi people.
It has been over three years since I enjoyed three months in Benin City, Nigeria volunteering at a hospital. It was during that time that this blog was started. I learned so much from many wonderful Nigerian “aunties” at the hospital and feel blessed to have been welcomed into their space. I also look back in awe at the Idahosa family and their generosity; I cherish the time I spent with them and know they taught me many lessons about the value and joy that comes with the “family” in your life.
In Nigeria, I was not Miss Everly. I was Auntie Everly. And I think I liked that title better since it had a way of making me feel like family to people I had just met. :)
