On May 31st, 2012 the Maxwell family boarded a plane and moved to eSwatini (formerly known as Swaziland) to live at Project Canaan. I hope to update my blog on Saturday mornings and share, as honestly as I can, the highs and lows of our life in Africa. We are living on a farm in a remote part of this tiny Kingdom and are serving the community as well as the orphans and vulnerable children of the nation. Thanks for joining us.

Mothers all over the world are being honored tomorrow
(Sunday, May 11th) for Mother’s Day and I want to honor my Mother
who is living at a nursing home in Guelph, Ontario.I got to see her last week during a short trip to Canada,
and I am so happy that we were able to spend a day together. I am who I am because
of her faith, her drive, her determination and her prayers for me.This blog is for you mom.
Here are 10 things that my Mom taught me when I was growing
up in Matheson:
is never worth it and you will always get caught (!).
butter and tomato is a great sandwich combination
best way to clean a dead partridge is to put it on its back, stand on its wings
and pull its legs out.
to the Symphony as often as you are able.
in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your ownunderstanding.
finish your antibiotics.
adopted child is loved just as much as a biological child (and I know that for
sure having been adopted and now having 53 little ones who I call my own!)
is freely given, but very costly to lose.
answer “no” is just a cry for more information.
eat yellow snow.
Thank you Mom for all you taught me. I miss you and love
Live from Swaziland … I am blessed.
