Here’s a bunch of pictures I’d like to share but they don’t necessarily go with any of the writing I did.


One of the gas stations. Lots of businesses are named interesting names like that here. This gas, is just in glass jars and they dump it into your vehicle. We have been using more standard gas stations with regular pumps like in the US.


One of the coolest non-urban companies I saw. Didn’t go it but looks cool to me.


Common looking roadside businesses. Ots Ots is restaurant/bar. Lots of them around here like that.


I love these palm huts. These are used for chicken coops, storage of whatever or just hanging out in the shade.


In Clements Village near Fendell. The woman just collected these palm nuts. The red meat is taken off and beaten into palm oil or palm butter, both are used a lot here for cooking. The kernel inside the red part can also be used for another type of oil but I don’t know a lot about that.

The new LLTW minister, me and some local kids within the foundation of the school.


LLTW kids from Clements Village.

Clements Village people hiking back to the village from the river after baptisms. The guy in the front, Will, is carrying an old blind man. Both got baptized that day.


Kids from the local school (Fendell Elementary School) at Clements Village.


Man near our house with a pet sloth? Is that a sloth?



Us and a bunch of locals at the LLTW site.


Very awesome guy, Will, from the village who helped LLTW a lot, including building our bamboo church.

This is the way they cook in Liberia, outside with charcoal. This was some of my dinner!


Kebbeh cooking.


Some very cute kids in Clements Village.


Liberian Gothic. Liberian couple at their pineapple farm. We met them during our hike in the bush. I love this picture.


Hiking through the bush to Clements Village.


This was in Red Light, a VERY busy place in Monrovia, named because it was the first place in Liberia to have a red stop light. This is a HUGE market. I had to hold Kebbeh’s hand when we navigated through there. I didn’t get any pics of the market because I was too overwhelmed but we found Patience getting some fake eyelashes!


African girls. Saliha, me and Kebbeh.


Liberian money. They also use American. And not that they “accept” it, but that they really use it. There are no coins used, so often you would receive your change of less than 1 USD, in Liberian money. 88 Liberian dollars = 1 US dollar when I was there.


Me and Patience, Helena and William’s daughter, at an African wedding anniversary party.


Me at Francis’s place in my lapa. Lapa is the bright cotton cloth that is very popular in West Africa. I thought I was going to be able to find more in Uganda, but so far I haven’t see much! 🙁

I love all these pictures! The businesses, people, how they cook and your surroundings. That animal is definitely not a sloth, sloths are bigger and have long “claws”. It looks like a Slow Loris but the markings are different.
