1: Malaika (My daughter) and my nephew Mando | Too cute for words!
2: Don't you wanna, wanna FANTA?
5: <----- This fabric is called a chitenge. Used as wraps and skirts. | Here we are at a local market, the woman pictured above is Edwin's sister's Mother in Law. She was sooo amazing and such a sweet lady!
6: Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. CathyAllen
7: Our drive around the city
9: A | After a lot of practice I have finally figured out the art of carrying Malaika on my back. She likes it a lot and asked me now to, "Hold her like a baby!"
10: We drove through a place that Edwin called "overspill". This is what you saw at almost every house. This is how the people make extra money. They sell charcoal, vegetables, and oil for extra money.
11: A friend of Mom's named Chanda has a church in overspill. These are the precious children that met us there and sang for us.
13: These are faces I will remember for the rest of my life! They LOVED having their pictures taken
14: The church has a brick wall around it and wooden beams holding a straw-like roof.
17: They kept asking me for toys. One little girl walked up to me and said, "I want a dolly please and a bike for my brother." It made me wish I had Santa's big red bag of endless toys to hand out.
18: For I know what I have planned for you,’ says the Lord. ‘I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope. - Jer 29:11
19: No carseats and no seatbelts = a fun picture filled ride back home!
20: Just do it!
