There was no training on Thursday due to the national holiday. So we spent the day visiting and seeing some of the rural area around Monrovia. We made some new friends in Clay-Ashland. They were very excited about their new pencils and the cameras that we had.

Ms. Famatta Morris is the oldest living graduate of Lott Carey Mission School. She will be 95 years old in September. She has lived in the same house in Clay-Ashland all of her life. We had a lovely visit with Ms. Morris. She shared some potato greens with us, and many stories of her community and her many years of serving as the principal of the local kindergarten.

Ms. Morris' house sits on a beautiful piece of land right by the St. Paul River. It is so peaceful and beautiful. No wonder Ms. Morris loves it so much there!

The road to Clay-Ashland. Look at the red African dirt!
