The First Five Weeks

by Eddie Arthur

Eddie Arthur is a missionary, anthropologist and director of Wycliffe Bible Translators UK. In 1988 he moved, together with his wife and young child, to live in the Kouya village of Déma on the Ivory Coast. This is his fascinating diary from the first five weeks of that adventure. In his amusing style, he documents his arrival in the village and first steps towards integration. He paints a colourful picture of the characters he meets, adjusting to the local food, tropical diseases and the psychological impact of settling into a completely different culture.

Eddie has agreed to donate his revenue from this article to Wycliffe.
