1 Month and Counting!

Well Folks...we have less than a month here in the USA! It's hard to believe...but Guinea is right around the corner! We head down to Atlanta May 12th and then fly out on the 13th, arriving in Guinea on the 14th. We will be staying in Boke (the third largest "city" in Guinea) for our orientation period. The Diallo family will be our host family and we will be renting a house from them. They have 3 kids and since we'll be sharing a yard, we'll be seeing each other everyday. They will be our lifeline during our stay in Boke. They are a Muslim family and understand that we are Christians. We're are excited to see what God is going to do in their lives this year! Here's a pic of our "supermarket"! We will be visiting this outdoor grocery store DAILY since we will not have a fridge for this first year!

Lunch anyone?! This is a typical meal...rice with some kind of sauce...palm nut, peanut, etc. They like to make it spicy too!
Talk about balance!! These ladies are good! I find myself wondering, "Will be 'hanging out' with these gals?" Pray for strength and endurance!
