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.

– Annie

We joined Mocha Club because we were looking to do something as a community of college students working together to help expand the Kingdom. We are able to show other college students how we can help people across the world right from where we are and truly live out the Gospel.

I joined Mocha Club in 2008 as a college student looking for a way to make significant impact in Africa while living on a small budget. Interning at Mocha Club in 2009 allowed me an intimate look at the heart behind the organization and I have been inspired to help in any way I can ever since.
