African Journals by Matthew Albright – nicht zum Lesen, sondern zum Schreiben!

African Journals
by Matthew Albright

Matt, auf der Suche nach Verkaufsstellen für seine Journale, erzählt uns: „I was born in South Carolina, USA. My parents both grew up in West Africa as missionary kids and were planning on moving back there. By the time I was two years old we had gone through a year of French language study in Quebec and then moved to Guinea. It was here that I spent most of my life; growing up speaking Pular among the Fulani people group. I later began boarding school in Senegal and spent time between the two countries. I left West Africa when I started to attend university in Texas to study aircraft mechanics. After receiving my mechanics license, I went to Mali, West Africa for one year to assist in a development project. While I was working there I spoke with some Dutch colleagues about a Bible school in the Netherlands which they had attended. And so now I am in my final year of the Bible school in the Netherlands, right on the border by Kleve.
As I was home in Guinea during this past summer I purchased some typical Guinean cloth to begin making some journals on the side this year as I study. These journals are handmade by me, Matthew Albright, in the Netherlands and covered with cloth that reminds me of where I come from, and perhaps where the Lord will take me after I finish this schooling.“

Matt wurde in South Carolina/USA geboren und zog als Kleinkind mit seinen Eltern nach Guinea. Die weiterführende Schule besuchte er im Senegal. Nach einem Studium der Luftfahrttechnik in Texas arbeitete Matthew für ein Entwicklungsprojekt in Mali. Zur Zeit studiert er im Abschlussjahr am Cornerstone Bible College in Beugen/NL und besucht die Vineyard-Gemeinde in Kleve.
Seit seiner Zeit in Guinea stellt Matthew aus Papier Notizbücher her, er näht und bindet sie selbst und bezieht sie mit Stoffen, die er im letzten Sommer beim Besuch seiner Eltern aus Guinea mitgebracht hat. Sie erinnern ihn an seine Herkunft und eine mögliche Rückkehr nach Afrika. Diese African Journals bietet er zum Kauf an:

“Some journals full of life and with a history.“
