...And the paint goes on....

Last week, much to my concern, James, weakened from the ulcers, purchased lots of paint for the school building and took off for Kabala. The journey to Kabala from Freetown is a long one. Traveling with many buckets of paint and other supplies makes the trip even more troublesome. It seems to be the custom to have your vehicle break-down along the way and this particular trip was no exception.

James has now returned safely to Freetown and photos on the latest work at the school will be uploaded to the blog periodically.
