2013 North Africa: We're Not in Kansas Anymore

Week 2

We are nearing the end of week 2 and are beginning to better understand the ways we are NOT at home, in that we are trying to mold ourselves to our new culture.

While we knew this long journey would take us halfway around the world, we did not know what it would be like living here---really living here. 

This has been a great learning experience, meeting people, sharing life, and seeing Him through different eyes.

We passed by these people dancing and making music while walking through a beautiful garden in the city. (video below)

The culture is EXTREMELY hospitable... Before seeing patients, we have met at the village's medical clinic where they give us soda, that we must finish before we can leave. :)

Another big part of every day are the calls to prayer, 5 times a day... Each time the call sounds off, we are reminded to lift up this people who are in so much spiritual darkness. (short video below) 

Ask Him for this nation, that He would shed His Light and save their souls.
