I wrote this poem yesterday. Yet again, I found an apt photograph a fellow team member took in South Sudan. Russell Turner and his son took wheelchairs with us on the first trip. The fellow in the chair is an elderly chief, in his 90’s, which is rather old in South Sudan. I love the people, they are so tall and proud. I really do love these folks, and their culture.

About Sharon Hughes
I love my family (husband Paul, and children; Hayden, Karen, Phil and Lisa and grandson Xavier); my faith (Christian); agricultural aid (particularly in South Sudan) and writing poetry. I worked in agriculture science for 5 years, I had changed my career for a while, but recently went back into agriculture science. I will continue to use my agricultural skills to attempt to train and empower others. I have been involved in an aid project in Patuet, South Sudan since 2007. I will share a little of all my passions here, all are welcome.
