Siaka is our groundskeeper at the mission office. He cut the bananas from the trees behind the office and put them in a bag. They will rest in our office utility room until they ripen. Yum!
The birthday boy on his 63rd. We went out to eat at the Crown Xpress restaurant and had a pepperoni pizza and a philadelphia sandwich. They were delicious and totally like home ... a nice surprise. Marlene had a present wrapped up in a bandanna for me. It was nuts, salsa and candy. We watched a movie and had ice cream and chocolate chip cookies. It doesn't get any better than that. Marlene asked if I ever thought I'd celebrate a birthday in Africa. I truly never thought I would, but here we are.
