For as long as I can remember whenever I was asked what my favorite time period of history was I would say without hesitancy that it was the era of the pioneers.
I have always been fascinated by the pioneers and how they left everything to move out West and start a new life. They packed up all their belongings, left everything they new behind, set out to find a new home and literally built up their homestead from scratch.
As I look at our family and the lifestyle we live, I see so many similarities. Instead of moving out West, we’re traveling half-way around the world. Instead of a covered wagon we pack all our belongings in suitcases. There are differences, indeed, but the lifestyle we live and the many challenges we face are very similar to that of the pioneers.
It was in thinking of these similarities that this blog came to be . . . the African Pioneer!
