A year ago at this time, James was returning to Sierra Leone after his visit to America.
|James during his visit to St. Simeon Skete.
While in America (his first trip outside of Africa),
James was able to
meet in person many of
those who have been with him through the struggles of rebuilding life after such a terrible war. His heart had already been touched by them, now he was able to meet and physically touch them.
He was also provided a complete health screen by NHA.
Now today, a year later, he is back in Sierra Leone, struggling with a rather stubborn case of Malaria combined with an even more stubborn case of Typhoid.
He has just returned from opening a new village in need of NHA's assistance, he has a new two week old daughter
and much more responsibilities added to his charge.
