my friend sariah...

my dear friend sarah is arriving home today from a three week trip to africa. she spent the majority of that time on a mission in uganda. she and two other ladies from our church went to help put on a womens bible study and retreat in kampala and nebi. afterwards sarah had the opportunity to go to nairobi and spend some time with toby, another close friend of mine who is on missions in africa. i can not wait to hear your stories sarah! but i promise to give you a few days rest before i come over and wring you for all the details!! i love you and i am glad you are back safe, cant wait to see you my friend! until then, enjoy these lovely pictures from tobys gallery.

I learned a few things about Sarah. I think that if you love her as true friend should, then you must meet her bearing key-lime ice cream bars and slim jims.

sarah and all the (wild) animals...something seems odd about writing that!

Hi, I'm a fellow corporate blog surfer (shhh) just curious about why your friend sets up bible studies in Africa? Is it a drive to spread Christianity, or are there other components to such missions? I've always wondered why more people seem willing to travel to countries in Africa to teach religion rather than sustainable living, building methods, helping growth & development etc...

Anyway, I was just curious.

i agree that africa has other, very pressing needs.

what's great is that our friend toby builds buildings, water towers, digs and repairs wells...most of his job is engineering related. pretty much any pic of him in his gallery shows him hanging from structural skeletons or at least wearing a welder's face shield. he's a man's man for sure.

That is really great. Good for your friends for being so selfless in their drive to help others. Regardless of their reasons for going, I'm sure they are wonderful people.
