Back in Swaziland!

Oh how I miss you all so much. I just wanted to update you on whats going on lately. I am in Swaziland at the moment and spending time at the orphanage. I am creating a video for our Compassionate Life Foundation. We visited our new property for the 2nd orphanage that we are opening in Africa yesterday. I also had a one-on-one interview with a woman that is struggling with HIV and TB. It was very eye opening to see whats happening and to see how Swazi's really live. I am going back to the Church we established just now. We will do some more filming and spending time with the children and orphans of this fantastic kingdom. It is very dry here. They really need rain as fires continue to run rampant through out the region. Will update you more when I get home. Love and miss you all!

    Oh that's a pity're in Swaziland already :-( I sent you a message/mail on Facebook but I guess with all the loads of fan mail you receive you probably didn't get to read/overlooked mine. Ahhhh well... maybe next time then.

    Please give "my boy" a big hug for me...wish I was there.

    God Bless your Beautiful Heart

    Hey Derek,

    Glad that you got the chance to go back to Swaiziland. Did you get a chance to see the same kids that you saw when you went on the first trip? I hope so bacuase i am sure they loved it if you did. They love having you in their lives and we can all see that you love having them in your life as well. Take care and we will conitue to pray for your safety. And also some rain. Take care and may God continue to bless you with that big heart of yours.


    P.S. Do we get to see some updated pictures of you and the kids? I hope so because those pictures were precious last time.
