Smiling Faces. Hot sun. Teaching both with the orphans and pastors.
The first three days have gone by very quickly. The pastors have been very receptive and very appreciative of Tim's teaching. We joined with them Tuesday evening for cookies and soda. Chelsea did a great job of sharing her testimony!
Our energy levels dwindle by late afternoon as a result of the heat and playing with the orphans - they have so much energy and crave our individual attention. We have learned several new games. A different take on "Duck, Duck, Goose" and a game that appears to be called "In, Out". The goal is not to be eaten by the crocodiles!!
We have been sharing the story of Esther with them through puppets. They enjoy coloring and they so loved the bubbles, the giant beach balls and the squirt guns that have appeared throughout the different days.
We would cherish your prayers for relationships, effectiveness and energy!!
