Salone Post making sure to deliver our boxes.

Once again the Post has done its job on both ends, Stateside and in Sierra Leone.  

James makes his way to the Post Office to pick up two boxes.  

There are six more in travel to Freetown

And once again we are able to replenish our supplies.

James and his family only recently depleted our our stock while distributing in villages of Kabala.

Therefore  was nothing to treat the symptoms of malaria that James has been experiencing all week.

But as is the usual case, at the point of greatest need, a shipment arrives.

This particular shipment had a few extras stuffed inside, since the desperately needed supplies we were shipping (syringes and needles) were so light in weight we could afford to cram some other items in the box.

As usual, while Lucy unloads,

 Roo is patiently looking for his special surprise from Mama Vicki.  

Once found, he is all smiles!

We are thankful to the Salone Post for making sure to get our boxes to us, as shipped with nothing missing.

  Thanks to you all and keep up the Good Work!
