On Tuesday, March 18, 2014, God blessed our team in a magnificent way. Ntoro Nkanta brought us to his village where he was a teacher at the orphanage.

They showed us their Palm Oil Presses, banana and plantain trees, the children homes, and made us feel very welcome and safe. This was a huge relief.

At the conclusion of the program (ceremony), two of our six suitcases of supplies were presented to the children. Toothbrushes, underwear, crayons, children’s books, and backpacks. The children were just “jumping up and down” with joy. All 100 children simultaneously brushing their teeth with their new toothbrushes. Nancy Allen gave the children a quick tooth brushing demonstration.

Would a neighboring community steal the system?
Could we get the equipment through the airport?
Is it safe for volunteers?
We have much to think about.
