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.

F-R-I-E-N-D-S

As I've mentioned before, we've become part of a group of friends which we've come to call "the family". This week has been a momentous week for us all - I had my birthday yesterday, and Jenn left us today - so we celebrated our joint celebrations/commiserations together every night this week with movies, pizza, more movies, ice cream, hanging out together, eating together, singing together...This is the closest it'll ever get to us being in that TV show "Friends", and we love it. Over the next couple of months we lose every single member of the family except two...but we will all be reunited again in Sierra Leone early next year. Below, the family at the joint Jen's farewell/Olly's birthday meal. Olly

Happy Birthday Olly. Glad you have the "family". So, are you the family dad? Kind of reminds me of Acts 2:46. "Every day they continued to meet together . . . They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts"

Blessings,
Byron

Happy Birthday!

I've been reading your blog for a while now -- I grew up in Liberia, so it's a bit of a trip down memory lane.

Just saw you guys on the Discovery Channel, which was pretty cool.

Cheers,

Gordon
