Phoebe's Photos From Renk, Sudan

Deborah, Bishop Daniel, and Phoebe Roaf

Back in July I made a lot of posts about the work of our teams from VTS and Duke teaching the biblical languages in Renk, Sudan. (Click here for the initial post in that series.) My own Hebrew student Phoebe Roaf was the Hebrew teacher in the first team that arrived in Sudan in early July 2007. Recently, I've been able to spend several hours with Phoebe reviewing her many photos from the mission. It was wonderful to hear her descriptions and to see images of people and places I had previously only been able to imagine in my mind. In coming posts I hope to place several of these photos on-line as part of this blog. The photo above features Phoebe on the right and Deborah on the left, with Bishop Daniel, the anglican bishop of Renk between them. Below is a second photo showing three of the Renk students wearing VTS and Duke T-Shirts brought in by the visiting teachers.

New T-Shirts from VTS and Duke!

Hello Phoebe -

Great photo! I have a very good book for you written by a "Lost Boy" so don't buy it, it is in all of the book stores now.
