I ordered a kids book written by a Brit living in Burkina Faso–“Sophie and the Albino Camel.” I just started but am already hooked. The story is about an English girl living in northern Burkina. She gets swept up into an adventure. I can’t wait to read it to my own white kids trying to find a way and discover who they are in a sandy sea of darker faces. The book recognizes the challenges of this cross-cultural life, grabs their hand and pulls them out on the floor to dance. I know my kids will see themselves in the story. Heck, i see myself in the story. And i know it will open their eyes to the adventure around them. Thank you Stephen Davies. I want to write stories like that for my kids. I want to tell God’s story that well to my Jula friends and neighbors. May they–we be drawn further into that big story together.
