Above is an image of all countries in West Africa.   

Below is the Link to the handfull of countries where I could serve in Africa.

Start at the hinge of Africa, Cameroon, and move left over the dark orange countries.

My gut says Ghana or Berkina Faso.  What do you think?

    It’s a crap shoot at this point, however my gues is a larger city, rather than the bush if they utilize your marvelous skills. Wereve you go, it will be exactly where you are meant to be. Each country is unique and special. How exciting!!!! Keep us posted

    I agree 100% about the crap shoot and about I will end up where I am supposed to be. I have left it in the hands of the power that is!

    (I’m sorry for commenting all over your blog… I’ll slow down eventually.)
    But… I just remembered something (and looked it up to check): Burkina Faso is considered “francophone” by the PC… so unless you were specifically nominated for (and meet requirements of) a French-speaking country — you CAN’T be going there. Hmmm!

    Sarah,

    You are so beautifully naieve!!
    Because Vicky doesn’t speak French has nothing to do with her placement… I say this from experience. I was sent to a village only for a man, but they left out the ‘e’ on my name. I was trained in Mende and sent to a Kono speaking ditrict , walked into my village and could not even say ‘hello’… it’ part of ‘life in the PC’ and all works out eventually.

    BF s a fascinating country, however was called Upper Volta when I was in Salone!
