A Highway In Africa

by sandihester

Prepare the way for the people.  Build up,  build up the highway!  Remove the stones.  Raise a banner for the nations.  Isaiah 62:10

My friend Amy is doing just that – preparing the way and raising a banner for the people in Africa.  She is a missionary in Africa.  I love painting pictures my missionary friends send me or have posted on their blogs.  Amy posted both of these on her blog.  The first one is a very loaded down van on some sort of “highway”.  I loved the colors and how it was stacked to the sky with stuff – last but not least – a wheelbarrow – you never know when you’ll need one of those in Africa :)!  I painted this picture last night while cleaning the kitchen and cooking.  I can do that since my painting “station” is my woodblock which is right in the middle of my kitchen – very convenient!


This second picture is of a lady at her sewing machine in a hut.
