In July of 2010 I traveled with a group of friends to Togo, West Africa for two weeks. While there we travelled all over the country and stayed for 3 days in two different villages. While there we had something like a day camp, and then at night we shared the message of Jesus Christ and helped establish churches in these communities.
The first village had a water well and was a pleasure to stay in compared to the second village which had no source of clean water at all. Life is difficult for these people as they deal with deaths and diseases. Many of us will be returning in the Summer of 2011 to help them get a clean water source and to establish an orphanage.
