Building Progress

The Christmas team worked hard at the site - most days making more than 200 blocks!! The main building is slowly taking form and it's exciting to see it growing. What you can see in the photo on the right will eventually be the accomodation blocks and the chapel.

The team visited the current City of Rest in Fort Street and spent an afternoon there singing and chatting with the guests.

Freetown Traffic

Freetown traffic just seems to get worse and worse. Bob and I went over to the west for a meal last night and it took us over 2 and a half hours to get there. Today we had to go into town to do some preparation for the team who arrive on Sunday and in total we were in traffic for over 3 hours! At the moment I feel like I'm spending most of my time stuck in traffic!

Happy New Year!

Bob and I had a lovely new year at Number 2 River Beach. We stayed in a bungalow on the beach. We walked a lot, took a boat trip, rode jet-ski's, swam and ate a lot of nice food - it was a lovely way to start the year.

We're back in Kissy now and I'm preparing for the teachers team who will arrive at the weekend.

Jill left just before new year as planned to spend her last three weeks at International Dove in Regent helping in the school there.

Bob will be leaving this weekend - his time here has gone so quickly!! It's been great for me to have Bob here and for him to see the country and the people that I love so much. I don't think it will be his last visit.
