November 22, 2018 by Joel and Andi It is probably not best to leave a story unfinished. The next day we were successfully able to leave and the rest of our trip went fairly smoothly. Here are a bit of our story in pictures. We were able to take a small local airline the next day and the flight was great We loaded up in a taxi and took drove 3 hours to our first visit Don’t worry we road inside the car We were stopped once for about 20 minutes as a truck was attempting to be pulled out However we were thankful we weren’t stopped there longer and after a few attempts they let us pass We visited 4 missionaries who are on the journey of learning different languages and different ways of life We sat in on their session and did some activities together with them We also visited their neighborhoods Met the people they knew And participated in normal life together – like meal prep The food is different from what we eat in Senegal, but also very good We often attracted a crowd where ever we went But relationships are what we are there for anyway We ended with a meal out These were my playmate for the few days we were there – books and lots of games And of course who could pass up a chance for ice cream! This was my third trip out this year to visit these folks It was encouraging to see their ability to communicate grow The journey for all of them has only begun May God continue to give them strength and wisdom as they continue and press on.
