Margaret's War Widows

The Sierra Leone Civil War left many women widowed, including our friend Margaret. Margaret's formed her War Widows for Christ, a type for support group and co-op. They help and support eachother through a little farming and other projects. They also meet regularly for bible study. I adore they ladies!!! 

Saturday morning we walked down to the wet land where they were working up the ground to plant rice. You can see them way down there in this picture above. Gideon was excited about trekking down this huge hill! 
(Jedi was asleep on my back the entire time! Like a good little African baby, ha!)

When we finally arrived they all cheered, clapped and welcomed us with hugs and kisses. They showed the kids how to work! 

makes my heart smile :)
