VVF Reunion

The annual VVF reunion started today and goes through saturday. Hundreds of women gather from villages across Nigeria to celebrate their healing from VVF. Tonight they had a special program with dancing and singing. I loved walking around and greeting everyone. These women are so precious to me. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about them. People gathering to watch the special dance
A group of Fulani women here for the program

My precious friend Ngosono who lost her baby recently. God has restored her joy and she is coping well with the loss of Emembe.
