DEC '07 In Africa with gifts

Dec 21, 2007 Sao Tome & Principe

On assignment in Africa - this

particular project took us to Sao Tome & Principe where we discovered a wonderful country. The best of it all, the children of Almas Elementary School, just a few minutes from downtown Sao Tome.  I managed to show up the day before their Christmas party with enough pencils and erasers for each student to have a couple.  The principal was deeply thankful because it meant he would have something to give to each of the children at their party.  Wish I could have been there.
