Jessica and I returned late Saturday from a short trip to Sierra Leone where we presented at Terri Khonsari‘s technical center Families Without Borders, and the University of Makeni in Makeni, and at Fourah Bay College (University of Sierra Leone) in Freetown – to about 300 students in all.
Sierra Leone is one of the friendliest and most welcoming countries in which I have ever traveled. This West African country is particularly remarkable its its religious tolerance. Although about 60% of the country is Muslim, we saw a wide array of religious institutions and practices coexisting in peace. Jessica and I were particularly delighted with two small stores on either side of a shop where we bought bowls. One store was called Christ In Me Enterprise and the other Allah is Great Enterprise.
