African Cuisine

We had an assignment here at orientation to cook an African meal from scratch. So we decided to stick together as our Sub-Saharan Africa group and make our meal pot-luck style.

We contributed some fresh squeezed lemonade.


Yes, we cleaned out all our paper cuts and hang nails.

And ended up straining the lemon juice through disposable tea bags.

  • Hey, you use what you have, people! 😉


It was definitely more fun to try new things together as a group. You know, things like peanut soup.


It smelled so good!

I love that when given the option, we choose to do things together.


That’s what this new Africa family is all about.

And while we’re spread out all over the continent, in our hearts we will always be near.

Mmmm, it was yummy. =)


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
