Face Lift

Our office has a new look - we have painted the walls and done a few touch ups here and there. It looks great: the result of amazing team work!

The whole team is together for a few more days and we are trying to make the most of it. At the end of next week Tim and Evelien are teaming up for a two week teaching trip to Uganda and Rwanda. This will also be an opportunity for them to do some preliminary research and organisation for YWAM's CRIT communication consultation next April and for the field assignment for the students of our School of Field Journalism. There will definitely be more news about their trip in future updates.

Visa requirements in Africa change constantly and one has to stay up-to-date with any new hoops that need to be jumped through! On previous trips to Uganda visas could be obtained very simply at the port of entry. A few days ago we discovered that our travelers will have to obtain visas from Pretoria before they leave. One of the requirements is a letter from your employer confirming that you are going on holiday!

Other news:

Martial and Lea have been back from their honeymoon for 2 weeks now; it's great to have Martial back in the office. Over the weekend we joined them for lunch in their new home. Thanks to technology we managed to share their wedding day by video - that was part of the lunch :-)

Student and staff applications are starting to come in for the School of Field Journalism next year. We continue to have a sense of anticipation as we brainstorm and prepare for that time.
