“God’s Will”

Life in Africa, always has something new for me right now.  Transitions are usually difficult, but keeping a good attitude and your sense of humor seem to be the keys to good transitions.  Driving in Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia, is quite the experience and I am still adjusting to it.  It’s hard enough to remember which side of the car to get into, and then which side of the road to drive on, but add to that a crazy mix of slow trucks, more speed bumps then I can count, cautious and slow drivers, and finally extremely aggressive fast “minibus” drivers, and it makes for exciting stories on every commute.  The beauty of the minibuses is that in spite of how they actually drive, they have friendly reminders of the important things of life posted all over them.  It’s good really, but it just doesn’t always seem like it after they have just cut you off, or held up 2 lanes of traffic with a green light because they pulled into an intersection that was already full when they had a red light.  But hey, it’s a whole lot easier to take pictures while sitting in traffic then driving right?  And after all we do want God’s will to be done…
