This past week (and I'm not making this up), a strange man in a turck pulled into the community asked for me and delivered 45 sacks of used clothing to the building we use. He made me sign on the dotted line and off he went. I had no idea who he was or where he was from and I was more than a little daunted by the amount of clothing I was now charged with giving away. After a good cry I remembered something - the YES Team! They can do my work for me. This past week then we spent our afternoons opening sacks, sorting the clothing and overseeing mass giveaways. It's been a real treat especially with these mild, Sahara temperatures we've been experiencing.
to give perspective that's a pile 3 tables long and two tables wide and we were only about a 1/3 way through the project
we had to cram nearly 50 children into a corner of the building
that girl there in the middle is rockin' a nice 80's style mid-life hair-do
we'll call her barbara
barbara there reminds me of the methodist women that populated my grandmother's church back in the 1980's
barbara makes me long for my simple childhood
