Ok...today was much better than yesterday. Proof that God is here helping me through tough times and listening to my prayers.

Augustine and I went to Sehoue today to meet the artisans there. Sehoue is about 20 min north of Houegbo. I'll be working in that community too.

The artisans seemed very happy I was there...actually, they each told me specifically during the meeting that they are happy I'm here-it was in Fon, which was then translated for me into French.

After the meeting, I visited a few of their business locations. The President of the Artisans business was the last stop. She has a very nice set-up. She has a restaurant with picnic tables set up under some trees in some grass. It's very pretty and relaxing, and right on the main street through town. (Side note: restaurants here are WAY different, there isn't much variety...usually it's rice, with either beans, fish, or hard boiled eggs, and a sautéed tomato, piment (hot peppers), and onion sauce)

After lunch, Augustine and I went back to Houegbo. We went to my house to fill out my forms that I didn't have with me the first time we went. I learned that the place I was being shown won't be my permanent location. There is someone renting my current location, that's why he can't show it to me...I'm still skeptical of the whole situation.
