An Accounting of my 2020 Year

This has been one interesting year!  There has been nothing like it on record, in the history of the world.  In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic and other disasters that have swept our globe and our hearts with emotions ranging from inconvenience to fear, we have found ways to carry on and to do the things we love.  I have loved working on my family history and writing projects this year, while serving as a full-time missionary with John.  It’s amazing to see how little bits and pieces add up.  It’s turned out to be quite a productive year, in so many ways!

Here is a short accounting of some of the things I’ve completed this year, spent entirely in Africa, while serving in Bamako and Abidjan.

It’s my feeling that every word recorded, every person found and documented and every photo preserved adds a bit to the good in this world.  That’s my goal, to find, to record and  make safe, and to preserve for future generations the good that I see and am experiencing, no matter where I am.  It’s been a good year, in spite of what’s happening out there.  I am happy and looking forward to 2021.
