 The NP fuel truck finally arrives at the mission home five days late.  We have been bringing diesel in five gallon containers to keep our generator working.  We burn about 400 imperial gallons per month.

 They put the fuel truck hose over the fence and we climb a ladder to the 500 imperial gallon storage tank.

The man on top of the fuel tank is shivering out of control in the rain.  I was wet but comfortable.  Our compound guard, Hassan, in his tan uniform, was helping us.  We measure the amount of fuel with a stick.  They do the same thing with the fuel truck.  There are no meters on the trucks in Sierra Leone.
