A lady who took care of the food let me try and put a big bowl of things in it and put it on my head. It was fun to try it! You need to have a good balance and be strong to hold. I saw a woman on the way to church this morning and she was carrying a big cooler on her head! Amazing!
I spent some time with two deaf ladies who both became very ill with Ebola and typhoid. I asked them what happened when they got sick. Christine was hit with an Ebola and end up staying in a hospital for 7 months. They gave her pills to stop the Ebola. It took her a long time to recover from it. She said it was very scary. All her families had to stay away from her and no visitation until she was completely heal from it. What’s very sad was her brother’s wife died from Ebola. Then he remarried to 2nd wife and she also died from Ebola! Lorpus, another deaf lady, was sick with typhoid. Her family assumed she had an Ebola and had to stay away from her but that wasn’t true. Her niece, Mom and aunt all died from an Ebola. They all took their bodies and burn it.
People have been asking me for money today and I had to say no. One little girl said she wanted me to buy her a bicycle. I said I’m sorry that I can’t and explained to her that it will not be fair to others.
It has a wonderful week for me to learn many different things about Liberia. I give thanks to God that I’ve been healthy and have no problem with food and the weather! I look forward to share my experience with church people, my family and friends!
