Visiting Anounou’s Home Place

2020-1-20 Anounous Family Compound (1)

Anounou is our Malian brother.  We’ve worked together for a long time.  He’s been to our Utah home, but today we got to visit his Malian home place and meet some of his family.  Anounou’s father had 4 wives and 22 children.  They are a close-knit family and they love and help each other.

Today Anounou took us to see where he grew up as a boy, here in the old part of Bamako.  We met 2 of his brothers and 2 of his brother’s wives.  They also felt like family to us.  There was a peaceful feeling here in their 2 compounds.  Friendships deepen when you get to visit the home places of those you love.
