Eating a Person Named Pizza

Tonight I want to share my friend, Jessie's blogpost with you. She is one of my closest friends and she recently moved to Sierra Leone, Africa to help take care of the children at the Orphanage the Raining Season has opened up there. :)
I can't think of a better person or more loving heart for the job!

Her blogs are always so fun - I wait with anticipation each day to see if she has written one. The work she is doing in Sierra Leone is bringing so much joy to these children. She is giving them love and hope and showing them just how much GOOD in the world there is. And some of these children have seen things that I cannot imagine and would not wish on anyone.

Jessie's Blog

We had a fun week with the team, celebrating birthdays, and playing football games!

Yesterday we took Betty, Sam, and Rugiatu out to eat to celebrate their birthdays this month (Cari and I decided to take all the kids 12+ who have a birthday out to eat at the end of the month.. this month we had 3 :) ) We took them to get pizza and french fries at Mamba Pointe! SO many firsts, first time at a restaurant, first time drinking coke with ice, first time having pizza AND french fries and first time having ketchup. We showed them how to eat pizza and fries with their hands. They we so interested with it all! At this restaurant they always bring out peanuts, popcorn and garlic bread before the meals... after explaining many of the meals to them Sam asked "How do you manage to know all this"... hahaha.... we have A LOT of food in America that people here have NO clue about.

We also had a funny miscommunication moment with Sam... When we told him we were going to take him for pizza I guess he thought all along we meant that we would be eating a PERSON NAMED PIZZA.... not sure how he got that idea but I'm sure when we were explaining pizza to him on the way he was freaked out and thought we were crazy! We had good conversation at dinner and it was fun to introduce them to so many new things.

Going on day 7 without running water and now we no longer have electricity upstairs... wonderful. Glad you can't smell me while I am typing this :) Tonight Cari and I were standing on the balcony staring off onto the horizon... Cari stop the silence by saying "Phew, what is that smell... it smells like pigs or something?" as I replied... "Alright Cari... lets go wash off with our buckets..." ha! Whenever we get water back it'll be such a great early Christmas present!

Here are some pictures from the week...

This kiddos at a church service... they were the guest choir... beautiful.


Saminatu and I... she said she had a headache... I think she just wanted to come into our office and sit with me. ;)


My excitement on Halloween... at least a LITTLE taste of Fall...in soda form... apple CEDAR. haha
