We're In The Jungle!
Hey everyone! We are here! It's been a long day... we started early this morning by navigating our way through the busy Toronto airport. Our flight was great and we are all very happy to be in the beautiful warm jungle and avoiding the winter storm you guys had today! Seems like good timing on our part! We arrived at the YWAM base a couple of hours ago and had some amazing friend chicken and rice. Right now the team is settling into our dorms, taking some showers, and checking out our incredible surroundings. It is finally feeling real to us that we are here after many long months of meeting and training together. We have been trying to imagine what it would be like to be here... and it didn't seem real to many of us until we arrived. But we are finally here and so ready to start this awesome adventure. Tonight we will have a quick team meeting and orientation time, and then head to bed early. And tomorrow we'll head to the King's Children's Home right after breakfast to begin our work project and meet the awesome kids who live there. So exciting!
Thanks for tuning in... make sure to share this blog address with any family and friends who would like to stay up to date with what we're doing. I'll be back again tomorrow night with some stories from our first full day!
-for a great sleep tonight so we can feel fully rested to start work tomorrow
-thanks for praying for our leader, Ali. She is feeling a bit better today, but still not back to 100%. Pray that she can have a great rest tonight and be feeling great by morning.
Blessings to all of you !
Kristin and the team
