 Ok, so we decided to take our huge, could-knock-someone-out-if-need-be camera on our outreach yesterday.  I took some shots in the car on the way to give you an idea of what daily life is like and was able to get a few shots of the boys before my camera battery died.  GRR!!!

This was taken in a field on the way to the market.  I just thought it was a cool photo
This is taken on Freedom Way.  It is the main shopping street for the locals.  You will find women all over the city who find a spot and set up their baskets to sell.  The man is a store security guard, not a police man. 

This was a shot taken from the car.  Thought it gave a good idea of what store fronts look like.  

An apartment complex we pass on the way to town.  

These two photos were taken in the bus terminal where we have our outreaches.  These boys have been on the streets for years.

Luis is talking with Weppy and Joe.  Joe is the the one in the stripped shirt. 

Right behind where we were talking with the kids someone had set up a makeshift shoe store.  People find an empty spot and go for it.  There is no rhyme or reason.

This is Mulenga.  He is smoking stika.  It is a combo of Benzine alcohol and glue.  The kids sniff it to get rid of hunger pangs and cold.  He has soaked a rag with it.  

This is Reagan...he is SO SWEET and has been on the streets for WAY to long.  

This is Andy.  He is about 13 years old.

  1. More powerful then the other photos. They look so life weary already, as kids, thats sad. I look at the little spoiled brats here and say, " switch em" for 30 days than bring them back...
    As always, thanks for sharing . God Bless both of you. Keeping it real with the other post you did about going to the mission field..culture shock, huh...
