Amadou’s Mom

Amadou's Mom

This picture is perfect, in my mind, because Amadou’s sweet mama is shy and does not look for attention. (I had to be quick to get this shot!) Her son is the first Christ*an convert in their village, and he is now attending Bible College in Maradi — a fact she is proud of, (despite the fact that she is musl*m). When Gail and Ish*y* visit their village each week, she happily spends all day preparing a huge dinner for everyone! She kept thanking me and holding my hands together with hers…even now, I recall her gracious touch and my heart swells with love for her.
