October 22, 2019 Pele Wala Village Sierra Leone
Took the long way into the village and passed where we turned in before. Road we took last year was impassable. The greeting we received was just like last year, but even bigger. This time they did a native dance and drums. Overwhelming for sure. I quickly saw Fatmala that is sponsored by Ken Baker. So glad to see a friendly face among a few I knew.

The Art of Living Well

Here is a link to the series: https://thebibleproject.com/explore/wisdom-series/

Here is a details background information on how it was produced: https://d1bsmz3sdihplr.cloudfront.net/media/Quarterlies_Other%20Downloads/TBPq_003_digital.pdf

Highly recommend this for any and all who are even r…
