Off we went in the van, firstly to a local primary school to collect a boy
|The welcome group shelling peanuts.|
|Hunt the missing child. What can you do? Not much but stand around and feel a bit awkward.|
With mouths full of dust and loud waves goodbye, we left and drove to Aloyse's compound. We had already driven a long way off the main road and now we went even further into the scrub. The road my this stage was just a dust track. It would be impassable in the rainy season. There were dusty areas being ploughed in preparation for the rains, numerous Baobab trees, wandering cattle, goats and donkeys.
|Best clothes but not sure what to say or do. Neither of us do. Smiling is good though||!|
|The welcome group grew bigger.|
|The official photo with his family|
|He loved his football kit. Ben, he got yours!|
|Foundations of the new house.|
|Into his house past the cement pot.|
Their new house being built after a long time saving and some good harvests, is about the size of our lounge.
|This is about the sum total of Aloyse's current house|
|With the village elder.|
"Do not store up riches for yourself where moth and rust destroy and theives break in and steal. Instead store up riches in heaven... for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
If you ever see my heart moving let me know.
