And it was a FUNDAY!
Hi everyone! It's 10:00pm on Sunday, and Sunday Funday was a HUGE SUCCESS!! Thank you all so much for praying for the weather! It was supposed to be turrential downpours today, but instead the rain stayed away and we were able to have a great day with the kids and even enjoyed a few minutes of sunshine. The team did AMAZING today! Hosting 90 kids for a Funday and meal is no joke! But they worked so hard, played so hard and loved the kids so much. They had really amazing attitudes today, and were willing to jump in and help in every situation. The kids from KCH had an incredible time. Tomorrow will be the first day that they all start asking me how many days until Sunday Funday. It is a huge highlight of their year, and is such a blessing to be able to do for them. We played every game imaginable, ate fried chicken and nachos and cheese, had the legendary slip n' slide, and ate giant bowls of ice cream. And they all got to leave with a bag of candy and treats.... marching to the bus with HUGE smiles on their faces. Thanks again for everyone who contributed to making today a success.
After a much needed afternoon nap and some fried chicken left overs, we headed to church in the local community called Roaring Creek. It was a great night of worship and learning. It's so interesting to worship in a different culture, and see how much joy the people here have in their relationships with God. We feel like we learned a lot. As we were driving home Maycie said "tell everyone that church was very powerful and encouraging and it taught us a lot." She summed it up!
To say that I'm tired is an understatement... so it's off to bed for me! Tomorrow we are headed to the Children's Home all day, and we can hardly wait to get there!
Thanks for your prayers and encouragement!!
