James was fortunate enough to have been able to rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle capable of carrying the whole family, plus supplies and medications.
Roads being what they are in Sierra Leone, a 4-wheel drive allows us to get to villages that otherwise we would not be able to reach.
Thanks to VistaPrint, we were able to temporarily personalize the truck with a Nazareth House Apostolate Magnetic Sign.
The Rainy Season continues in Sierra Leone, but life goes on.
James' cousin, Albert carefully makes sure that Kadijah is completely dry and not slipping and falling in the mud as she makes her way to another Medical Clinic in one of the villages.
I miss Albert, he is in school and I don't always get to see him when I am in Sierra Leone. He is a fine gentleman with a humble and kind spirit.
As the heavy rains beat down on the people of Sierra Leone,
you'll find them sheltered in their homes
and other places to keep them dry.
Children being children - indoors - playing Hide and Seek, teasing one another.
Laughing and playing.
However, for the children of Sierra Leone,
when the rain comes day after day,
more times than not, you'll find them playing right out in the midst of it.
It brings a little variety to their daily adventures.
It cools you down and makes life interesting.
|Squishing your toes in the mud can be so fun!
This is part of the strength of a true Sierra Leonean, they take what is given them, be it rain, poverty, war or disease and they deal with it.
And if the moment gives you rain, then you make life happen in the rain.
