Happy birthday to my favourite country in the world! BOTSWANA. I am everything I am today because God gave me the honour and privilege of being born and bred there. All the great parts of me… have your autograph on them. I LOVE YOU & EVERYTHING YOU STAND FOR! A few interesting facts about Botswana:

1. The word used as a greeting, DUMELANG, literally means BELIEVE.
2. The phrase used for goodbye; GO SIAME literally means IT IS WELL.
3. The 1st line of our national anthem says “THIS COUNTRY OF OURS, IS A GIFT FROM GOD”

Go figure! No wonder we have had so much favour from God, and been protected from so much drama. Yes, we have our own little downfalls – but after all is said and done… KEEP BEING A GREAT EXAMPLE!

“Know, therefore, that the Lord your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commandments” Deuteronomy 7:9
