The pictures and comments in this particular posting are by Jada! She is now on her way back to the USA, and we pray for safe passage for her and Julie. It was great to have them with us! As always, the preaching of the Word of God is the top priority on these trips, but pictures of people sitting to listen do not make good blogs........ hence the below pics and notes! (as with all previous posts!)
We taught the kids in the slums for three days and one of those days we told them the story of Noah. Then we had them color pictures and they were all so proud to show them.
We had the chance to visit the Alvar Helmes Mission Hospital where the Doctor works and the Little Lambs Orphanage where Jean-Mary (the doctor's wife) works with the orphan kids. While we were there, we got the chance to enjoy the children’s singing. It was such a neat thing to experience!
These kids were some of the ones that greeted us when we first arrived at Pastor K’s. The children are all so beautiful and they are such a joy to be around! They will truly be missed.
We got the opportunity to serve lunch and tea to the pastors who attended the pastors’ seminars! There was so many of them that showed up to be filled with the Word. It was so incredible.
Julie and I got to go with Pastor K, John, and nine of the girls to play in the water on the beach. The rest of the group gets to do this after we leave because they are staying longer. We were given a sneak peak since we are leaving sooner. We had such a great time playing in the warm water and building sand castles! It is great to be able to spend these few minutes relaxing and connecting with the orphan children since they go to school 6 days per week... on Saturday night they are ready for some fun, as were we from much work this week!
