Julie’s recent blog post described the rice and beans and other creations that come out of our Kibuye kitchens. Today I’d like to tell you who is instrumental in Kibuye kitchen work. It’s our househelpers. God bless them. We love them. They play a significant role in enabling our families to eat and live and thrive here.
|Darius masters the chapati.|
|Salvatore has cooked for McLaughlins almost 4 years|
|Christophe, expert bread-maker, is househelper by day, security guard by night, and pastor on the weekends, supporting his wife and 8 children.|
As these househelpers help us in our homes, they also help us to understand the local culture better. They answer our questions, and some of them correct our Kirundi. They invite us to their homes and to cultural celebrations.
|Delissa got married last summer and now continues to work 3 days per week. This is her wedding reception.|
|This summer Krista attended Delissa's Guhekereza ceremony for her new baby.|
|Francine called us to visit in the hospital when her new baby was born.|
