OFF TO AFRICA!

Jen Pettigrew travel blog
Hello!

Starting in September I will be doing a 'Water for Life' internship with Samaritan's Purse. After 3 weeks training in Calgary I will be heading to Niger, Africa for 6 months. There I will be working in rural communities - installing water filters, teaching and who knows what else... This trip is going to be a challenge but one that I am definitely excited to meet!

I am hoping that this website will allow all my friends and family to keep up to date on my African adventure. I will try to update this page as often as I can, all the while keeping in mind that internet access in the desert may be hard to come by... I'd love to hear from home so feel free to leave me a message or send me an email.

Thank you all for your support and prayers!
Jen
