Here are some pictures from Togo and life in general. (To get pictures of the blog sites...right click on the picture and copy to your desktop.)
This is the Otter and I at the Togo Baptist Conference Center. The otter has now been to three countries: France, Burkina Faso and Togo! He says Hi to the Sunday School Class!
See all the green in the background! Awsome! Love seeing trees! This is Otter with African houses in the background.
Otter did get a little air sick on the way back from Togo. The overhead compartment was a little crowded and the pilot said there would be slit turbulance and it felt like we were traveling though a hurricane! Also he didn't have his yellow vacination card showing he had had his yellow fever shot...it was a few minutes delay at Ouaga imigration!
So how many missionaries does it take to get a T.V. to pick-up a soccer game?! The guys are trying to watch the African Cup of Nations and the T.V. intina is giving them problems!
They finally got it fixed and nothing can distract them from the game! The comentary is in French...but that does not stop them. No one takes their eyes off the T.V.!
Things are going good. French is progressing. Emily and I are joining the American Club pool today!
On Wednesday...our language helper invited us over for a Congolize meal! We had foufou! It is mixed vegies, fish, and a bean sauce over rice or manika...and lots of fresh fruit! It was sooo good! (I will post pictures later!)
Mostly things have settled into a routine of sorts. Get up at 7, go to class at 8. Class from 8 to 12 than lunch. Study or walk around town to practice French.
There is a huge missionary community here in Ouaga and we have fun hanging out with everyone. It great!
The West Africa IMB trustees were in town this week and they traveled all over Ouaga and Ghana to see the work going on in the area. I got to have breakfast and dinner with them yesterday, Friday. There were 5 of them and they had the whole experience, rough roads, different food, dust, and heat!
