We were up at 6 am and off to the airport. Things took just a bit longer to clear customs for our flight to Kigali, Rwanda, so we were delayed us just a bit. We left Mozambique after a full four and a half days, with many great memories.
Today was our last day in Mozambique. The last time I was in this country I led a large bipartisan Senate delegation introducing my colleagues to five countries in Southern Africa. That was four years ago. We spent a couple of nights in Maputo then, but on this trip we have made a point to travel outside of the capital city to different parts of the country. This is possible because of the single-engine Caravan plane and the dedicated missionary pilots of AIM AIR who have flown us places that would have been impossible to visit.
16 July 2008 I woke up at 3:30am this morning, left my son Harrison in the hotel room, and headed for our 4:30am departure to Nampula, Mozambique. We flew in a Cessna Caravan of AIM AIR with Capt. Dan Spooner. Capt. Spooner had taken me in AIM AIR with Samaritan's Purse about a year and a half ago to Darfur from Nairobi, Kenya and then into northern Uganda into the area of the Lord's Resistance Army.
In Maputo, Mozambique, today, I met with senior officials to discuss the progress of the Millennium Challenge Corporation Compact that Mozambique signed with the United States last summer.
