happy birthday Whitney...

Whitney is 22 today and Jeremy and I actually got to talk to her! We both cried when we heard each other's voices. She is in a little remote village in Zambia. She was excited to tell me she was riding in a truck with some Zambians and one of the missionaries. He stopped the truck and jumped in the river with crocodiles up stream. Whit said she just jumped in right after him with her long skirt and all.
She said, "Mom, they all sing and these precious little faces, covered with flies, just plop down in my lap. It's so real."

My heart is somewhere in Zambia today...
