When In Doubt, Post Pictures

This is a mantra that has been oft-repeated by my mother, whose blog mostly consists of pictures.  As I don't have anything particularly meaningful to say (yet), and I have some blank space that needs filling, pictures appear to be the way to go!

This is a picture of the beach at ELWA, which is an acronym meaning Eternal Love Winning Africa.  It's essentially a great big missionary compound where many of the Samaritan's Purse and SIM (Serving In Mission) missionaries live.  This picture was taken several weeks ago shortly after we went swimming.  (We live several miles from ELWA, so we walked there along the beach.)  This was an hour or two after low tide, so the waves were still manageable.

This is the fence at our compound.  The tree you see there is a coconut tree, which we've harvested several times since moving in in December.  (While coconut water is rather strange-tasting, I do like the coconut flesh.)

This picture, however, was likely taken in December or earlier, before we had any work done.  The wire hanging off the fence there has since been taken down and replaced with broken glass and new wire.

Here's a rather artistic picture of a sunset through our new wire.  If you look closely you can see the broken bottles cemented to the top of the wall.

That's the same coconut tree, by the way. ^_^

And that's pretty much all I've got.  If you have any questions, ask away!  Maybe I'll respond with pictures.

  1. This sounds like a stupid question, but what color is the dirt on the ground there?
    (It's blackish brown where I live, red in Georgia (the one in the US, not the country), and beige where my uncle lives in Colorado.....)
