1 week to go!!

Only one more week to go until I leave on my big journey.....YAHOO!!!!  I am really starting to get excited....oh boy.....I can't believe I am actually going to Africa..AGAIN! I am soooo lucky and feel so fortunate to be in CCA's Credit Union Coaching Program, and even more so to work for Interior Savings, who has supported me in this incredible opportunity to share my credit union knowledge with others...thank you from the bottom of my heart...I'll work hard to make you proud!

Speaking of "heart", Malawi is know as the "Warm Heart of Africa" and I can hardly wait to experience it first hand....and more importantly share it with all of you :)

I've received my posting and I will be travelling to the Northern Region of Malawi this year, in and around the city of Rumphi.  I understand that it takes a while to travel there from the capital city of Lilongwe, but hey that's all part of the adventure!

My partner this year is Garth Sheane who is another credit union professional from Vancouver Island and we will be travelling to 3 credit unions together in Malawi...look out Garth...we are going to have quite the adventure together, you'll never be the same again! hahaha.....

Our hope is to leave a little piece of ourselves behind, and to help the people of Malawi...I hope I can do just that my friends, leave another little piece of myself in Malawi!
