No Shoes

When we first arrived in Cameroon, we noticed how the majority of missionary’s kids didn’t wear shoes outside.  Usually the shoes would all be together in one spot while the kids ran to play.  Tonight while eating dinner, Jonah told us that he learned about a place where people can’t wear shoes because shoes don’t exist there.  He said he would like to live there and be free from shoes.  It cracked us up that he spoke of shoes like they are feet prison and how he would like to be free from them.

At school you will find all the shoes in piles or objects in Capture the Flag, but rarely find them on the students’ feet.

    That made my night. I wouldn’t mind being out of foot prison too, Jonah!

    Grace would enjoy this… She rids her feet or shoes and socks whenever possible! This makes for interesting sock-matching during laundry days. I’m sure my laundry task is NOTHING compared to yours, though! Does Sophie help with this? I’ll pray for her, along with you guys!

      Thankful Sophie does help with the laundry. She also is able to get out every stain the boys manage to make to their clothes. Thank you for your prayers.
