Photo Essay — Joy Springs #1

by CommNet Media and Pioneers-USA

Music, folklore, poetry and proverbs characterize life in West Africa. It's vibrant and has rhythm. But living is difficult. Resources like education, health care and water are scarce.

"In the midst of the lack, the African has found joy and exuberance," says Eugene Yakohene, director of Pioneers-Africa. "This joy springs from inside. If you imagine adding Jesus to the natural joy that the African already exhibits, there is no limit to what can happen." 

That's why we're calling our series of videos, articles and photos from West Africa "Joy Springs." The photos on the right will give you a glimpse of the people and landscape where our African partners are sowing seeds and reaping harvest.
