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 problems in Africa can at times seem so big and hopeless but Mocha Club makes me feel like I can be a part of making a difference.  On my own I know my $9 wouldn't go very far, but by combining all of our small sacrifies and making teams who are giving to different missions we can together can make a big impact.  I love that!

I heard about Mocha Club at the Influence Conference in 2012 and fell in love with the whole concept...that I can make a difference! It's amazing to see how much I actually THINK about the choices I'm making when I spend money...what is a treat for one person can be a treasure to someone else and a turning point for yet another person. I'm so blessed by Mocha Club!
