New Canadian Friends!

We love saying ‘Welcome to Burkina!’ but saying goodbye is never fun.  And, this was particularly true for our new Canadian friends, Faith Cathcart and Deb Armstrong. 

Faith and Deb spent an action packed month with us at the orphanage. 
Faith and kids

They cared for and loved on babies.      


They made crafts like huge colorful flowers which even our biggest boys loved making. 

They brought in toothbrushes and toothpaste which enabled us to launch a tooth brushing program in our primary and secondary schools. 

They made wooden airplanes with our primary school children. 

They spent time with our 6th grade class making decorations for the classroom. 
They divided all of our older children into groups and took them out for lunch and a coke to get to know them better. 
They made beautiful beaded creations with the children.

They made Canadian flags with the third grade class.
They assisted in our Widows Basket food distribution. 
They assisted in a Child Sponsorship special gift distribution. 
They brought chocolate for Ruth!  Boy, this made me smile!

This is Deb and Steve
They cooked wonderful meals for us and made yummy apple crisp.  Thanks Debbie!

So many memories!  So much fun!  So much learning and experiencing life together.  We miss you Faith and Deb.   

Please come back soon?
