Sarah Storm, a 2013 high school grad, traveled to Burundi with us in August to help facilitate our language study by watching the kiddos. It was a tremendous blessing to have her as part of the team for the past four months.
She has graciously entertained our children during our numerous team business meetings. She also would stay at one of the homes on Wednesday evenings so that we could meet for our alternating men’s/women’s groups and book study.
She spent a significant portion of her time reading to our children, and since our container has yet to arrive, it’s been the same books....over and over again!
Most importantly, she watched the kids on the weekdays so that the adults could do full-time Kirundi language study.
She supervised many playtimes involving bottlecaps and blocks.
Sadly, higher education is calling her name, and so she leaves us to carry on with the next stage of her life. Thank you so much, Sarah, for loving and caring for our children. We wish you the best as you start college. Tuzosubira hanyuma!
