On January 24 we attended a literacy celebration at the Bredjin refugee camp in eastern Chad. The community gave the SIL team we were visiting a sheep to take home as a thank you gift. Jennie and I, along with the other human passengers, shared the back of the truck with that sheep on the bumpy ride home. I’ve ridden in the back of trucks before, but never shared the space with livestock on a bumpy sandy road. It was actually quite an entertaining experience. One of the bumps landed the sheep in my lap.
Jennie named the sheep Lucky. About a month later he was the main course at a celebration feast. Lucky for the guests, but not so lucky for him!
