What an amazing young man! Well done Shadrack! Your family and friends must be so proud of you..
There is a saying: “To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.”
I am sure this is how those two young men feel about you.. You mean the world to them…
Thank you for being one who really means to make the world a better place.

Thank you MJ for sharing that quote. I have never heard it before, but it sums up this story perfectly. I’ll be sure to pass it on to Shadrack as well!

What a heartwarming story. Londolozi opens the doors for so many wonders for their guests and for the people who work there. We are looking forward to visiting for our third time next month and we can’t wait.

My family and I were incredibly lucky to have Shadrack. His heart and his smile are both so big, I couldn’t help but being drawn to him. He is not only an amazing tracker, but also quite talented in helping me figure out the lighting and iso on my camera. Without his help, I would have never gotten the shots that I did. Thank you my friend.

Also, my family and I had the great honor of visiting the school talked about in the blog. The school there has done an amazing job with the little resources they have. The village itself is humble, and the people are so friendly. There is so much we take for granted here in the states. Many of these people have very little, but judging by the smiles on their faces, you would think they held the world in their hands. We brought with us school supplies, but my goal is to make yearly donations to help the school in anyway we can. These guides spend time away from their families to do the life changing work the do. Seeing “Shaddy” and his daughter interact at school was something that will always stay with me. Namaste my friend Shadrack. From Texas, namaste.
