Smiling Faces

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!!


  1. OMG! God is sooo good! The gorgeous blue skies with those white fluffy clouds, children smiling, holding hands, corn growing in the background, what a beautiful sight. It makes my heart hurt to see all the orphans. Thank you all for all you do! Even the re-routed flight avoiding Europe was a God-thing.I'm praying for everyone!!! Connie <><

  2. It looks beautiful there. The kids appear so happy-great idea to take the beach balls. Blessings on you as you continue to minister.
