The following photos are from my time at the Village of Hope, just outside of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso where I lived and worked from August 2005 - July 2006. Sara and I worked with a team to help establish an agriculture project at the children's home...and played with lots of kids, sang in our church chorale, zipped around on our moped, and were challenged by life in West Africa.
