Editor’s note: We’re excited to announce that one of our Mocha Club members and volunteers, Annie, will be blogging from Capetown, South Africa on the Mocha Club trip that leaves on May 28th! This is our first official “trip blogger” so please help us spread the word and check back for updates!

Hi y’all. I should have known better. I should have known that if I planned to pack on Tuesday, it would actually get done on Wednesday. I’m not a great pre-packer. And honestly, the pressure of you waiting on the video is the only reason I’m packed now. A few things:

1) I’m learning how to use this newfangled flip video camera. It’s very cool, but forgive the shaky-shakes.

2) We have a professional video editor that works with us at Mocha Club. I am not her.

3) Once I finished the video, I realized I had forgotten to pack any pants. So for total honesty’s sake, you should know that I’m going to have to pack some pants.

We leave for South Africa from Nashville on Thursday, May 28th but don’t arrive in Cape Town until Saturday. We’ll update you as soon as we are able.

The Mocha Club offers a unique way to support a few impactful projects within one organization!  After visiting Africa in 2006, I knew that I could sacrifice 3 or 4 trips to Starbucks a month if that meant helping others get the smallest things necessary in life like water, food and education.

I joined the Mocha Club, because I don't want my contribution to Africa to end after my 10 day trip. I want to put money towards something that will have lasting impact, and I want to be a part of the amazing things God is doing in this incredible place called Africa. That's why I decided to join the Mocha Club.
