I leave on June 22, via WDC and then straight to Johannesburg. A short hop flight to Durban (on the east coast) and a late night ride to Pietermaritzburg . There I will be staying with local families and working with Brian and Kristen Konkol, the coordinators of ELCA-M.U.D. (What is MUD? Check out elcamud.blogspot.com), for a few days. Then I'll be a week with Kelly Schumacher ffrom Grace at her year long site in Mapumulo. New names are becoming familiar!
