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.

YWAM Togo

This afternoon we joined Genevieve, a Belgian lady who has been living in Togo for over 20 years and working with Youth With A Mission. She runs a kids outreach one Sunday afternoon each month in a field near the YWAM house with six local staff, where hundreds of local kids come for silly games and Bible teaching. It was great to get hot and dusty and really involved with the local people again. Below, Sally making name badges for each kid. You can see the sound-system (that no self-respecting West African public function would be without) in the background.

Below, little kids drawing pictures.

Below, me with a lovely little girl who didn't want to be put down (photo by Libby, hence the finger in the photo).

It was a great (albeit hot and dusty) afternoon, and as usual we are in awe of the long-term missionaries who live ashore and carry out God's work in some of the poorest communities in the world. Olly
