Today we met with the team at Rock Children Services; Bishop Rosie Cox, Pastor Kotte Jr., William Kotee, and Dr. Braima the medical director.  We met to discuss how adoption fits into the overall mission of RCS.  Bishop Cox and her team were well organized and had well thought out plans.  Bishop Cox is also involved in a water project to build wells for fresh water in several cities, a feeding program to provide rice to communities, schools and at least two childrens homes, including a vocational program for older children. They learn sewing, tie dying, baking, soap making, computers, and wood carving.  Dr. Braima teasingly says she never sleeps
A young lady named Layal took us to the market in town to shop for donations to the orphanage.  Prices in the supermarket were three times higher than in the U.S.  A note pad was $5, a model toy car $40, bag of Herseys $8.  The streets were packed with people, pot holes and policeman directed traffic since there are no street lights.  We came back to the hotel and ate Lebanese food.

Wow- sounds exciting so far!
Surprised those items are so high. Guess they are that hard to come by. Glad to hear so many countries are getting involved to help. Guess the job's not done till it's done. Look forward to hearing you meet the kids. :)

Wow
It is ironic to me how a country so proverty struck in so many ways can charge the extreme prices. How are the citizens going to 'catch up' and how will the economy recover. Ethiopia's prices were so low. I just ache for these people. I am so thankful that you all are there and sharing with us, helping our eyes be opened to life there. God is really using you and Dawn.

I thought it was interesting. TC is studying slavery and we recently found out that some of America's freed slaves were shipped to Liberia. Some of the great great grandparents and such were born in America and were actually Americans. Wow....this world is so big and so small at the same time. Thank you again for all you are doing and the difference you are making in this world with every step you take.
Having a Blast in Christ,
Kat
