Can I just take a minute to acknowledge how beautiful this place is?

That's all.

Village life

Every week I have the privilege of going out to a village to visit. 

Getting out to the villages is always an adventure. The village where the guys on our team live is about ten minutes away, so we take Motos to get there. 

For the villages farther out we have to take a taxi through roads surrounded by millet fields. 

I have visited the guys village several times. They are doing an agricultural project that will one day work with improving their well. 

The other village we have visited is one where we hope to help teach English once school starts. A few weeks ago the principle gave us a tour of the school.

The school

One of the five classrooms. This classroom holds 55 students.

The people in the villages are some of the most loving and generous people I have ever met. 

I am so blessed to know these beautiful people.
