A Dress for Ruth from Marion

Ruth – not the same Ruth who received a dolly – responded a bit like Sarah. Watching the flurry of people closing in on the muzungu, she stood paralyzed while her mother pulled the dress over her head and all the other children looked on. It’s always important when giving more than one gift to a select individual to try to have gifts for all but this group seemed to understand that when the dolls, dresses, and shoes were gone…they were gone.
