Wow! I could almost feel your fear as you told your story. Very good point at the end how we don't always fear the right things. I commend you for your courage to go to this country as a missionary. Blessings, LaVonne
Well done in describing the impact of the heat of Africa. Made me feel quite nostalgic. Keep writing, your experiences will bring lots of material to share.
Are you wanting to frightening everyone so no one would even think about being a missionary? You might have, though, encouraged the adventuring type to think about it.

Emotions came bubbling out along with enough details to the wise to be ready for the unknown dangers - not the least of which would be to loose one's mate.

In an expanded form it could be named "Some heart throbbing dangers to be ready for on your first oversea's mission trip".

Congratulations on ranking 4th in your level and 14 overall. Happy Dance!
Congratulations on your 4th place finish in the Advanced category and 14th place overall, Vicki.

It is so true that we sometimes worry over smaller issues and miss the biggest danger of all. I hope you had some kind of air conditioning or fans; one hundred and five degrees is just too hot.

Well written.
