Sierra Leone part 14

Monday, November 22, 2010 – 8:43 pm – Brussels airlines – seat 18k

We’re on the way home. Where do I even start to tell about tell about the last week? It’s been amazing. It’s been very full. I’m full of experiences — some of which are easy to describe but some of which cannot be put into words. Last night, we had a kind of impromptu debriefing session as we ate the dinner that Gregory and Agnes sent to the guesthouse for us. I took a video of the setting. The electricity was not very strong. I cut the canned meat with my pocketknife. We talked about the experiences and impressions of these last three weeks.

But I must back-track…

On Monday morning, we continued with the primer construction. I continued with my job of word control. I became known as the word hunter and my computer got the reputation of manufacturing new words. What impressed me was the perseverance of my teammates as I would return the lessons with too many new words highlighted for them to go through and revise. Though there was frustration present, they kept on with the work and teased me about it.

This last week is now somewhat of a blur because it was so full. We finished the health lessons on Tuesday, I believe, and started fully working on the Bible stories on Wednesday.
