This is Laura. Yes, I forgot my password.

Yes, I am really here. I know some of you thought I just took the money and ran. This has been an amazing week. The children are absolutely adorable and are just craving some time and attention from anyone. This afternoon, we read the story of how Jesus washed the feet of the disciples and then washed the children's feet. (and lotioned them) It was an amazing experience. They are not used to anyone serving them. At first they werent sure they wanted to do it, but after we convinced the first one to do it, they followed right along. It was the first time all week that they were very calm and reverent. It was something we will never forget. Nancy scrubbed those little feet until they were pink, and sang to them. They loved both. How can you be sooo ready to come home and sooo ready to pack all you own and move here. Thank you to everyone that made it possible for me to be here. Christie, you wrote the devotion I gave this morning. Thanks for that. I love you, Will and Megan. Mind Grandma! I'll be home in a few days.

    It's good to hear from you Laura! I've been watching for you to blog, thought you were just too busy. It's great to hear how the LORD is moving there! Did it ever quit raining and warm up? Did you get to see your sponsered child? Well I guess we will catch up at church. Love you! Give Ms. Nancy a hug for me! Dear LORD please bring home all the team safely, bless them and give them courage to let go and to know that You are with the children every moment. In Jesus Name, AMEN
    Question...can you ask if it would be possible for our church to send a Christmas Shoebox to each child that came to camp? Would that cause a problem with other children in their orphanage? How many kids are in the orphanage? Is shipping something there possible? What carrier? Etc. See you soon, Marian
