Joni presenting a soccer ball to the CLP women's soccer team.
In Sorlumba the CLP women's literacy classes have formed two soccer teams. We had the opportunity to play with them and had a BLAST!!! There will be some highlights from the game in future-let's just say Wayne Rooney would have been proud of me! :)
The next morning we visited a village that has had BSF water filters for the past year. We interviewed Tomba's mom-she explained to us that runny tummy has decreased in her family and in the village since the introduction of the BSF. Her son Tomba was a little fireball and he and I had a lot fun playing and being silly!
Tomba and I goof'n around!!
I will post more about our trip. But I want to say that in the last 10 days we have hosted two media/broadcast teams from our SP USA office. Going to the different projects in and around Foya- listening to the stories, seeing our staff in action and talking with our beneficiaries-has been inspiring, emotional, fun, and once again I am so proud of our staff and all they do. Most of all, I am amazed at how God has used SP these past 6 years to spread His love. Our projects have and are saving lives. I am not trying to be dramatic-they really are. I have seen it firsthand these past 10 days-but it is happening everyday as our staff go out and meet the physical and spiritual needs of Liberians. What an honour to be part of all of it!!
Training-I had some good runs-including a very intense soccer game! I ran to a village we work in, Karpie, it was a long run with LOTS of hills! Mercy!!! However, no snakes which is always a plus-but lots of motorbikes coming way to close for my liking! It was great to have a running partner on my run today, as Alisa (who had malaria last week!) ran with me-ok, we had to walk a couple of times after huge hills and Bev got a stitch...ouch!
