Religious studies in Sierra Leone

Religious studies in Sierra Leone

In between charity commitments and chiefdom meetings, this reverend in Sierra Leone teaches religious studies in a junior school.  But classes of up to seventy-four students can be quite a challenge.  ‘The beeping of my phone alarm wakes me at 4am and I get up, trying not to wake my wife.  For me this is my time to pray and to work, and to think in peace.  I believe in a regimented life to get things done.  I pray to the Almighty to give me strength to do what has to be done to protect my family and the people of Kamakwie - the town where I live - and to help us to help ourselves.  This I do at my study table in the bedroom.  After 30 minutes of prayer I read the Bible or do some written work.’
