A Drive Through Botswana, Joan Hust

I drove through Botswana with girlfriends to go shopping for food and clothes in Johannesburg when I lived with my family in Zambia.  We had a lot of fun.  The border inspections coming and going took hours, and it cost five hundred dollars deposit to enter the country. When we returned to the border the officials gave us back our deposit. The people were very friendly and spoke English.  We saw a lot of wildlife especially we all enjoyed seeing so many elephants, giraffes, zebras, wart hogs, one huge tortoise only once, more impalas than you can count, monkeys chattering mostly as the sun goes down, and a herd of wildebeest. We stayed at a very nice Christian guesthouse, and met several missionary families.  We joined them for Sunday morning and evening services.  One of the church families invited us for high tea which was a new experience for me.  I did not know what to expect. 
Pray for the Botswana people to be encouraged by the fellowship of their local church.  It was a blessing to worship with them.
