This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Monrovia City Dump


Today I made my weekly visit swampside, where City trucks dump tonnes of garbage each day before bulldozers push it into the swamp to dispose of it and reclaim land at the same time. Its always utterly heartbreaking to see the barefoot kids searching through the piles of fly and poo-poo ridden burning waste for anything of value. The stench is always unbearable, and I can't even begin to think about the daily health risks they are exposed to. Please pray for their safety and deliverence from this hell on earth...Olly
