We were welcomed royally to BB & S’s village and we were given the newly furnished guest room to stay overnight. The beds are brick frame, dirt and gravel filled, with a layer of heavy plastic, then cardboard/very thin plywood, then a bedspread. A new type of bed for us!!
We had brought along camping mats and bedrolls and even a mosquito net, so we were fine, but what about their everyday/night existence? They cook over open fires, wash their clothes in the river,
toil in their gardens under the hot sun,
haul their drinking and cooking water from wells, and just plain make do with what they have.
The women from a couple of co-ops brought meals to share with us, though I’m sure it was not easy to stretch what they had. While Roy & BB went to another village, they came with 3 different breakfasts for me! May the Lord bless them!
