Pya, Togo Worm Pill Line

So many strange, unusual things happen during a mission experience in a foreign country it's often hard to know where to start or what to say. And it takes some time to settle into your life so that the emotion and the experience of it all match up. Sometimes those don't ever match up. About all you can do is tell the story.

At end of the Tuesday med clinic when we ran out of time to see everyone in line we gave out worm pills and vitamins or aspirin. Check out the previous posts to get an idea of how large the crowd had been ALL day. Add the noise level. Include English, French, and a couple of ethnic/tribal dialects like Ewe & Mina but multiply times 200. For me this video offers a strange contrast with Michael James playing keyboard and singing in background as the large crowd receives a "parting gift."
