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!

School life

Our first week of the third term is finished and it was quite a week. One of our teachers quit his job the day before school started, leaving me with a bit of a burden trying to fill his shoes...but, thankfully, Stacy stepped in and taught his class and I think she rather enjoyed it! So, all in all, the week turned out very well for what could have happened.

We started a science unit this week on the human body and the kids LOVED IT! I seriously couldn't get them to stop asking questions. We talked about bones one day, the brain another day, and the digestive system yesterday. Seriously, I have never had anyone so interested in marrow (you know they eat bones here). The kids were chowing down on their "calcium" today at dinner and commenting about how it was going to make them strong. So funny!

Our NYU girls spent some time here for their last week with NYU Ghana. We hated to say goodbye to them. Such sweet girls! Elizabeth spent the night here last night and we made jewelery until midnight. She was supposed to take off by noon today, but just couldn't leave yet. We'll miss her sweet spirit! Anna will spend the week with us starting tomorrow before she has to leave next Saturday. We're looking forward to having her here with us and the kids for the week!

Well, it's almost 10 and I'm exhausted, so it's off to bed. Teaching makes me TIRED man!
