Greetings from Burkina Faso! It's Tuesday evening here in the mission house and many of us are getting packed to head back out to the bush tomorrow for our final adventure -a safari! Not sure what we will see and experience there, but I'm guessing maybe a few elephants, baboons, and crocodiles. First we go to Tabitha House; a place of empowerment for Burkino women. We plan to visit the facility, meet the women and children and cheer on Dee Dee Sterling as she encourages, teaches, and cares for the women who come to learn and grow in self confidence, marketable skills, and in Christ.
I'll have more to say in the coming days and weeks about our time in Burkino Faso and will be posting many, many pictures along the way. There is great physical, emotional, and spiritual need here and yet the people have the most beautiful smiles and greetings in their hearts and spirits. We have been the recipients of amazing hospitality, warmth, and gratitude along the way. The children here are beautiful, precious, loving, and oh my goodness, do they love to have their pictures taken! And believe me, folks, your gifts for clean water in Burkina Faso is needed, appreciated, and welcomed in ways you might never imagined! I hope I can communicate in some way the enormous gratitude and love expressed to the team for the gifts of clean water and the wells that are being dug.
More stories as time goes forward. Blessings to each one of you!
In Christ's love, Kathy
