21st Birthday and Durban Holiday!


On Sunday the 8th of July we celebrated Carolyn Mereki’s 21st birthday with her family and the Dr. Moyo and Dr. Mudzingwa’s families with dinner and cake after Sunday night church.  Carolyn was so happy to reach this milestone and we had a great time celebrating.


On Tuesday the 10th we left Chidamoyo at 0500 am to drive to Harare and catch a flight to Johannesburg and then Durban, South Africa.  Major, Patience, Carolyn and I travelled and met their son Michael in Durban, who had flown from Joberg just before us.  We were spending 6 days together on a family vacation.  We have a condo right across the street from the Indian Ocean and a quick freeway drive to Durban city and surrounding areas.  


We have gone to see the Moses Mabhida Football stadium and took a car up to the top to see the sights of Durban city and the ocean.  The 2010 World Cup final was held in this stadium.  We also walked along the beach front, went to Marine World and have spent time in the shopping mall as well as traveling to see traditional Zulu dancing.


How great it has been to sleep hearing the ocean waves and playing in the ocean!  We wanted Carolyn to be able to see Michael before she heads off to school (hopefully) in the US in August.  She has been accepted into a Business Administration degree at Kentucky Christian University in Grayson, KY.  She goes for her visa interview at the US embassy on the 23rd of July.  Pray that all goes well.


Michael continues his Business law degree here in Midrand, South Africa and he hopes to graduate in November this year.


It has been a great family vacation and we head for home tomorrow!

 Happy Birthday Carolyn
