New Friends

….”Go in peace, for we have sworn friendship with each other
in the name of the LORD, saying, ‘The LORD is witness between you and me …    1 Samuel 40:22

As we were looking at all the farmers crops we seemed to have an entourage at every place. It always starts with one kid and before we are done there is a whole group with us! And they love to watch me take pictures, they will stand right up on me to see the screen. When I show them pictures of themselves they get so excited and laugh and point out each one. We met some parents of the farmers, I didn’t think one lady was going to let me go. She held on to my hand for so long and wouldn’t let me stand to greet her husband. One peanut farmer (Moses) introduced us to his parents. The father has a house and a few feet away his mother has her house. This usually means the father has more than one wife and there were other houses right together so I assume one or more were the other wives. It’s crazy enough to think that women have to share their husbands but right next door to the other women! Yea, glad I wasn’t born here!

Here are pictures of the people I took along the way.
