So today was nice and cool at around 80 this morning. I can't believe how much cooler it felt after the rain fell this morning. I'm the lead teacher for the preschool, so today I started planning for class and afterwards we all had Kabiye lessons. It's so exciting how much I learn each day, not only about the people here, but about myself. Keep us in your prayers as Mary Margaret has been ill today with a fever of 104-101. Hopefully tomorrow she will be able to join us in the village for a worship service with the locals. I'm really excited and looking forward to using more Kabiye and french. Today after a short nap Angela and I walked around the town looking at the Market and seeing what was being sold in walking distance of the house. We ended up chatting in Kabiye with two women using sewing machines, it was good practice for us. Then we walked toward the other side of the area where there is more farmland and spoke in french with a few people, which was hilarious. It's hard to always understand what they are saying and often they don't understand us. Probably because of accents, but it always creates laughter. It's been tons of fun and such an adventure :) I love you all and hope you are growing each day as well!


  1. I am so excited that you are having such an amazing time! I got your message about 2 minutes after you left it! I was so sad that I had missed the actual call, but I was at work... :) I love you!

  2. Thanks for the call! It was nice to wake up talking to you instead of the beeping of my alarm. :)

  3. We look forward to pictures and hope that you are being blessed tremendously. With love,
    Amber and Paul
