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!

Birthday Fun

Today in my birthday and I'm 29 years old. Wow! How is that possible?? Wasn't it just last year when I was declaring to my class that I was a decade old?? Wow!

Anyway, I got a full night's sleep last night, which is a huge gift in and of itself. The night before was terrible--with Edwin up for about 5 hours in the night. But, today, I am feeling rested and felt so celebrated and loved.

The kids sang happy birthday to me and gave me lots of hugs. And then, Rosemary and some of the other kids helped me do my laundry (which is a huge gift too, since we do it all by hand). After that, John and Stacy and one of our Australian volunteers, Jess, all went to Accra for a little birthday fun! We ate pizza and we went to see a movie, The Tourise (so good!). It was such a fun afternoon.

I also got to have a little time on the phone with my fam and friends that called in to sing me some birthday wishes.

I have felt celebrated and loved today! Thank you to those of you who sent a little birthday cheer my way!
