The past 5 weeks have been a whirlwind! I mean CRAZY busy with so much good stuff going on!!
One of the best things this last week was the opportunity to continue to build trust with the Chief of NML and show the people living inside NML that we care and love them. For the first time we were able to feed over 300 people. We cooked up a storm of Yellow Curry and a ton of rice!!
Here are some photos:
So many potatoes to clean, we ran out of sinks! Tub it is
Chopping up onions and potatoes
This little beauty slept through all of the work…I think I’ll try this tactic next time! ha
We also ran out of places to chop…side table in the living room will do juuuuuust fine.
25 Kilos of chicken!
In the middle of chopping onions and potatoes= messy!

You are loved You are worthy You are not forgotten
