Taco Bell in Africa

February 24, 2008

Have you ever gone without a Taco Bell burrito for a year? If you have then you would understand why our eyes widened in disbelief and wonder as Stan, our newest volunteer, pulled out four burritos that he had brought all the way from the States for us. No worries about mold, he ingeniously put them in dry ice! We fried them a little and slowly savored each bite with real Taco Bell sauce that he brought along. Amazing! Stan is a mechanic from Tennessee and is going to be a big help hopefully getting our generators working well again and working with Gary on the plane. It is always great to get new people over here. James and Sarah have sadly taken off already on furlough and are at this moment eating wonderful foods in Denmark and planning ski trips up in Norway. But I’m not jealous….because we have Taco Bell!!!


  1. Sarah,

    We were so happy to learn that Stan is in Tchad with you guys. He is amazing, but then I guess I don't have to tell you that after the Taco Bell story. Stan was a groomsman in our wedding and has remained one of my closest friends. We knew he was on a mission trip right now, but had no idea he was in Tchad until you wrote Sandi. How cool! Give him our regards and please know that we continue to pray for you all and read your blogs with great interest.


  2. Oh Sarah! We just had a our TacoBell run-for-the-border night here at Milo! It was really cold and later at night than it should be, but still fun. Glad you got a burrito! I'm even more glad that you're back online and doing Ok. But I gotta say, those rat stories are gross! Carolb

  3. Hey Sarah!

    We just met the wife of your surgeon (the one who did surgery on you) last weekend. She couldn't believe we were talking about he same Sarah when I mentioned the getting lost and a few other things;) Her daughter Sarah had interviewed here and is thinking of coming next year. (She was very interested in the horses.) Glad we can get updates from you again! Miss you lots! Lynda H
