Hey to all of our faithful readers! It has been a long and awesome day in the jungle! I don't have a chance right not to fill you in on all the details of today (but I'll leave you with a teaser... we were in a parade today!). But I will leave you with some great words from two more of our students. Today you can hear from the hearts of Talia and Chancelle.... enjoy!
Although crying while writing this, everything has been absolutely incredible here. God has been showing me so so much. He is soo good and amazing! I could not be more thankful for this experience. Waking up and falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle and seeing God's beautiful creation surrounding me as I serve, still feels surreal. The weather here is AMAZING. Mom, you'd have some wicked holiday hair! ;) Some days are cloudy and cooler, but the sun is still super intense. Learned that the hard way... Oops. Dev, I met Vincent. He said he misses you a ton! Then I said I did too. I also met his little brother Jessie. So cute. :) God has really shown me lately how precious life is and how you don't need anything to have joy. The kids at KCH have so little, but are so grateful and joyful for the littlest things. It was an incredible experience walking in there for the first time and having these little children jump all over you and seeing the joy on their faces. There is nothing like the feeling of putting a smile on the kids faces or making them laugh.
Shout out to my mom & dad, Dev, Brady, Curt, and Ash. I miss you all soo much! <3 <3 I can't wait for big hugs from all of you when I come home. :) Thank you again for supporting me in this and encouraging me when I became worried or doubtful about this trip. All of you are so special to me and I am so thankful God has placed each of you in my life. I'm praying for all of you and that God will keep you safe in your travels as well and for health. I can't wait to tell you all more when I get back. I love you all, with all my heart! You guys are the best. :) Love you soo much! <3

Honestly i was not expecting this at all what so ever. I've made some super awesome friendships with these people on my team and they've all just been incredibly awesome to be with! Im loving waking up to these jungle noises even though the monkeys legit sound like dinosaurs. I love everything about this place. The heat <3 the best, even though iv'e learnt that you definitely burn hard core even when its cloudy out. The kids <3 oh my, so adorable! Their all so happy with everything they have and they just have so much joy in everything they do. I feel so incredibly blessed to be apart of such an amazing experience, working on the house is so amazing. Being able to work as hard as I am knowing that I'm doing this for a safer and better place for those kids is so heart warming!

Thank you to all the people who supported me, my church family i love you all so much! Its bed time now so i just feel super blessed so thank you guys so much! Mommy & Daddy i love you <3
Thanks so much for all of your prayers. They are keeping us going. Project Serve is a demanding but rewarding experience. The days are long, but GREAT. Having your prayers and support from back home are a huge encouragement.
Tomorrow is Sunday Funday... and 85 kids are showing up for hours for fun in the morning. Time to get some sleep!!
Goodnight all... blessings.
Kristin and the team
