  • It’s been a crazy 3 weeks. The night we got back from Livingstone, Daniel crashed. What began as throwing out his back grew to excruciating pain and numbness in his left leg.

Dancers four hours late, reshuffling the food program, spontaneously leading songs and drama to fill time with kids who can barely speak English…oh, there were a few challenges.
