My name is Autumn Buzzell and I live and work in Ghana, West Africa with City of Refuge Ministries. Here, I run our school, Faith Roots International Academy, and get to be a part in rescuing and the healing of children who have been trafficked into the fishing trade, orphaned, abandoned, and those who just need a little extra loving. What an amazing gift this life is!

A little love

Yesterday, I was given the great surprise of recieving some cards in the mail. I don't know how long it took for them to arrive, but it was so fun to get to open them and read the words from friends back home.

When I was given the cards, some of the kids were in the classroom because we were working on homework. They were so funny! They started jumping up and down and screaming--and of course wanted to have everything that was inside the envelopes.

Carla, a teacher from Brentwood where I taught for three years, sent me a birth announcement of her little baby girl, Natalie. What a doll! Abigail asked if she could keep the picture! So funny!

Then T sent me a card and a little "care package". Of course, the kids all wanted the chocolate and gum. I had to keep the package under my arm until I left because every time I turned around, someone else had their hands on it. But even better than the chocolate and gum were 2 beautiful pictures of Brylie Kay and a cd with a song by Cory Asbury. SOOOOOOOOOOO good!

You can hear it here:

So, thank you friends for making me feel so loved today with your notes of love and encouragement! What a joy to have so many who love me and encourage me from so far away! What a blessing!
