Rain, rain go away! Finally sunshine after days of downpours and just in time for our day out in a community. The two hour trip could have easily extended due to the washed out roads but luckily we didn’t get stuck. We didn’t waste anytime once we got there. Face painting, balloon animals, piñatas and snacks made for a fun day for all. Of course it wouldn’t have been party without dancing! Before we left we passed out a new shirt, treat bag and bible to each kid. Looking around was like many movie scenes of poverty stricken areas, but it is their reality. Up until this point we had been in the city and orphanages which are more developed.
Tonight’s special treat for the girls in transition house was going to the movies. It’s been a privilege to give them each a night to show them how truly special they are. We take so much for granted and the smallest gestures can make an impact. We tell them each night that it is not us but God that has provided the ability to take them.
