This sign says "Beware of Crocodiles" in both English and siSwati. It is especially poignant to me today. John, the kids, and I were blessed with a wonderful weekend at a local resort (probably our last vacation together before three of us move to Swaziland). While enjoying gorgeous fountains and lush swimming pools, I couldn't help but reflect on the disparity on how much we have here, vs. the women and children who walk to crocodile-infested water to get their daily needs met. Some lose their lives each year in this way. Praise God that He is making a way for very real help for our brothers and sisters there as He allows us to be His hands and feet!
