Acacia Tree over a bus stop on the way to Gondola

View from the road nearing Gondola

November 30
This week has been rather exciting. We took a two day trip to Gondola and Chimoio to meet the people of the Gondola Mennonite Church and also the people that Jenny and I are going to work with. We also visited Sara, the other MCCer in the area, in her home. Gondola is situated on a steep hillside and the area is very mountainous and green. The area produces a lot of food for the country including about any variety of tropical fruit you can imagine as well as grapes and pineapple. It is also cooler and a lot less humid and Jenny and I were enjoying a break from the hot, humid climate of Beira.
