While she was here, Deb helped in a lot of ways and she got to see a lot too!
In September we were finally able to bring in over 2,000 pairs of shoes that Deb and her husband collected. She was thrilled to be able to help distribute some of the shoes to students at both our Gramothe and Dumay schools.

While here, Deb also helped me (Beth) to package up gifts for our Dumay students; over 300 bags! A huge thanks to Mr. Tim Jarvis for arranging to send all those wonderful Christmas bags with Deb!
The M-T-M Laboule Children's Home was another fun spot for us to visit with Deb. Stephen, David, Deb & I (Beth) loaded up the car and off we went to decorate the home with the children there. It was a fun time for all, see...
While some of us decorated the tree...
others helped the children to make paper chain decorations...
while others did some holiday coloring...
and we all enjoyed a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich when we were done!

Deb's week ended with attending Sunday church services at the M-T-M Church in Gramothe village. To her delight, Deb recognized many of the shoes that she'd given throughout the week, but moreso, the happy faces that are etched in her memory.
