Postal Tide continues to flow in and out

When James first arrived home from America to his country, Sierra Leone, 
he encountered a sick Roo.  

So after spending time waiting in and out of airports on his way home, once home, 

James found himself waiting in a doctors office. 
Luckily it was a rebound case of malaria that was not too destructive and Roo was back feeling well again in a few days. 


Remember the boxes that James and I prepared 
at St. Simeon Skete from the medications and supplies sent from several of our supporters? 
Taylorsville, Kentucky USA Post Office

All four of those boxes arrived in Sierra Leone at the same time James arrived.  
Freetown Salone Post Office,  Freetown Sierra Leone

Perfect timing!!!! 

As usual, Roo jumped right in to unpack the boxes.   

The girls, Lucy and Ann Marie 

were excited to receive some text books 
for schooling from Kathy Webb.  
The girls couldn't wait to investigate the new learning tools. 

Medications all around them (from Jim & Glenda Krapf of Breeding, KY.; St Augustine of Canterbury Anglican Parish of Chico, California; Debbie King & St. Alban's Parish in Arizona; Kathy Nagy of Louisville, KY; Kathy Webb of Carmichael, CA; Esther Criscuola de Laix of Oakland, CA; and Liz Holt of Augusta, GA),

Kadijah quickly plans the next distribution trip.  

They are all anxious to get out and help those in need.  

We are so thankful for the love and support of NHA Team both in Sierra Leone and in USA. 

  The tide of giving continues to flow out and in, in and out.   
God bless you all.
