The end of February, the mission team planned a little time away in Vilanculos. Vilanculos is a beautiful spot right on the Indian Ocean with warm blue water and white sandy beaches. The perfect place to spend some time together as a team and be refreshed. Andy, Joao, Jenn and I made the 6 hours drive down. Dwight and Lynn flew down and met us there…then on the way back we switched. It was much nicer to fly the 1.5 hours, but fun to get to experience both! On one of the days we did a full day boat trip and got to visit a few different islands. We also went snorkelling for two and a half hours on 2-Mile Reef. It was my first time snorkelling and aside from drinking what felt like about 5 liters of sea water…I absolutely LOVED it. There’s a whole other beautiful world under all that water! The trip wasn’t nearly long enough…but I’m so thankful for the time we were able to spend. Being at the ocean, walking on the beach, just exploring and finding treasures are things that restore my soul!
Here’s a few pictures so you have a little taste of what it was like:
