We love featuring our staff in Sierra Leone. They are the unsung superheroes day in and day out. The past year has been challenging in many ways. Regardless of the circumstances or obstacles that stand in their way, our staff continues to love and serve our children every day. We have been anxious to resume our staff features on the blog. Whether you have traveled to our center and seen our staff at work firsthand or followed our story through sponsorship, social media, and the blog, we know that our staff members are the hands and feet of Jesus for the children we serve in Sierra Leone. A feature on the blog is a small gesture, but we want to give them a sliver of the recognition they deserve.
Meet Ibrahim Jalloh. Uncle Ibrahim has been a part of The Raining Season staff for nearly six years. He and his wife have two children. Ibrahim serves as a driver for TRS. He drives the children who attend school outside of the center to school each day. He also transports children and staff to clinics and other appointments they may have. Our travel teams know Ibrahim well because he also helps transport teams when they are in-country. While driving is Ibrahim's main job, his flexibility and willingness to serve means that he also completes many other tasks around the center.
As a longtime member of our staff, Ibrahim was connected to The Raining Season by one of our caretakers, Aunty Theresa Turay. He was excited to join The Raining Season staff because he enjoys working with children, especially less privileged children like he would serve at TRS. As The Raining Season looks ahead to the future, Ibrahim joins us in our vision to continue to grow, purchase our own land, and one day build a center that allows us to meet our children's needs and continue to serve others in Sierra Leone.
Thank you, Uncle Ibrahim, for being a part of The Raining Season community. You are dedicated, kind, and hardworking. We appreciate you!
Join us in continuing to pray for our caregivers and staff. We pray for the impact they have on our children as they continue to navigate challenging times. Pray for the health and safety of our children, staff, and all of Sierra Leone as they continue to feel the effects of COVID-19. We also pray for safety from the Ebola virus that has been declared an outbreak in neighboring Guinea. Lord, we pray for your protection.
