As the Nazareth House Compound in Kabala continues slowly,
bit by bit, towards completion,
there remains the inconveniences of living out of the city
and away from the things that many of us take for granted.
However, James and Kadijah see this as a minor interruption but definitely not a major hinderance.
For in many ways, the move out of the busy city of Freetown,
has brought far more to their life than it has taken away.

It has brought them back to a place of simplicity,
|Albert putting up clothes lines for Kadijah, while the construction workers continue working on the Compound|
a place of stillness
where the hospitality reaching out from your neighbor's heart can be heard.
In Kabala, the people (of all ages, young and old) work hard and long,
but it is with goals and purposes
- much different from the frantic busyness of Freetown and other large cities of the world.
|Kadijah tidying up the dirt path in front of Compound, each sweep a prayer|
In the stillness, through the bond and love of our neighbors,
|Sanu & Kadijah delivering rice|
we can make a home in the hearts of one another and not have to try to be who they want us to be...
or what society thinks we should be ...
we can simply "be" who God made us to be.
No airs, no pretending - just living life.
Nazareth House is in Kabala to be of service to the people around us
but the people, at first word that James was down with a severe case of Shingles and with Kadijah in her pregnancy; the neighbors bring water to us at the Nazareth House Compound. Bucket after bucket of water fetched from streams a good distance away, arrives on the heads of our extended family - the Nazareth House Family. Love .... its all about love....
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. Luke 6:38
