Ryan and Shannon Busby invited all the missionary couples to their home for Christmas Eve. Ryan works for Chevron here in Liberia and Shannon teaches music at the local International American School. They live in a very nice compound and are here for the next 12-24 months. They are both from California and met on their mission!
Also invited were Alex (a doctor from Ethiopia), Yvonne (a doctor from Liberia but educated in America), Shelia (South African) that teaches with Shannon and the Gabriel Nwainokpor family (Gabrielle is the branch president in Matadi where the Busby's attend church).
There was so much food that I am afraid that some never even got touched. Ryan and Shannon had done 5 chickens, 2 pork loin roasts and beef brisket that Ryan had brought from America frozen in his carry-on bag!!!
We ate, played a game, got to know each other and sang Christmas carols! A beautiful evening - I ate too much but it was so goooooood!
