Visitors from Grand Rapids, a Walk in the Bomi Bush, a Flight to Dakar

We are in the midst of busy-ness, dear friends. Renita has her arms full with LEAD activities and the visit from Partners Worldwide and five brothers and sisters from Madison Square Church in Grand Rapids. As for me, my peacebuilding class has started, and Sunday I fly to Senegal for a week of meetings with other West Africa CRWRC folks.

I’ll have some shots of my trip to Senegal if I find internet access when I get there, and I might get a shot or two of my class.

In the meantime, enjoy a few shots of the Madison group visit.

Here some of the Madison Group meets with some of the Board members of LEAD.

Some shots of the trip to Bomi County. Here the Madison group navigates a shallow river. It was an hour trek into the bush.

Almost there, passing travelers on the trail.

Justin Behm at the site of the soon-to-be clinic and school, a DeVos/Providence project.

Norm Katerberg and Friends in the Bomi County bush.

The Madison Group visiting the Mother Wleh orphanage, where the "beach kids" are living. Somebody tell Dick and Kathleen Ammons to stop fooling with the camera and watch the kids!
