Trip to St. Louis, Senegal

Daniel was able to visit St. Louis, Senegal last weekend to see the dedication of a new maintenance internship program for young underprivileged boys. It won't start for awhile yet and we are praying about the possibility of working with them, but have no clear guidance in that direction yet. Overall we were excited about the involvement of the local Senegalese leaders and church elders and liked the town of St. Louis.
Pretty Tile work
Daniel helped set up for the ceremony
