Ok, not really these animals but it felt like it and I found myself singing this out loud as I tried to enjoy a quiet early morning time with the Lord. One of my favorite things since moving to The Gambia is to get up early and go sit in my backyard rocking chair underContinue reading “Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!”

I am back online after a few weeks of a wonderful vacation in the urban area of The Gambia. My time of vacation was exactly what I needed and was filled with lots of sleep, time with the Lord, relaxing reading, ocean breezes and sunshine (even though it is rainy season, there was little rain).Continue reading “Sunshine”

However, the tubaab (white person, that’s me) still has to be in charge of handing out the funds and making some of the financialContinue reading “Home Depot or Lowes?”
Today and tomorrow are public holidays in The Gambia as they celebrate the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting. This morning as I watched thousands of men and young boys (a few older women were in the crowds also) filing out of the mosques in their new holiday clothes my heart was overwhelmed byContinue reading “Holidays”
Isn’t there some expression that you should learn something new every day? Well, when you live overseas and are a missionary wearing many different hats you learn 10-100 new things each and every day (and most of it in a different language.) This week has been all about water, septic, plumbing and much more thatContinue reading “Always learning”
I have always been one to try and tackle more than one thing at a time, but multitasking looks a little different here in West Africa. While trying to finish up the work at the clinic the other day, our cleaner (who is always multitasking) came to work with fresh produce to sell. I mean,Continue reading “Multitasking”
