Today we had the opportunity to spend some significant time at Grace Village with the children that live there full time. We were able to listen in as the faith minister taught the children and even though he was preaching in their native tongue, it was like I could totally understand what he was saying and where he was in his story. We sang some worship songs with the children and made some artwork. Then they got to play, doing any of these 3 activities: making beaded bracelets, playing on the playground or futbol (soccer to us Americans). We played, laughed, ran around, hollered, screamed, sweated…….. Just had a great time. It’s amazing to see how a vision, that 2 people had 6 years ago, has turned out. Thank you Jeff and Alyn for taking that leap of faith.
After that we stopped by Gertrude’s again and spent an hour or so loving the children at her orphanage. Again, it’s amazing to see what 1 woman, who dedicated her life to the Lord 20 years ago to do his work, how it’s turned out.
As I write this our work here is over as tomorrow is a free day for us and Monday we come home. The last 6 days have flown by! It truly has been a privilege to come down here to serve and I want to thank everyone who helped make this possible!
