Janssen doing time.

Well it was our second day here with the orphan boys. They do work hard when you have things for them to do. We found out that the food we have for them at lunch makes their stomachs hurt. They say they would prefer soup over ham sandwiches. The interpreters are the hardest working people here. Plus they will eat the food we offer freely. They are a lot of fun to get to know. Some of their knowledge of America comes from American movies, they also listen to a lot of American music. My time here is great. I feel for the orphans here. It is so hard for them to make a living here out of school. Family is important here in order to succeed in their eyes. One boys story hit me hard today. I will probably offer to help him out tomorrow. He needs it. I am very glad that I came and will take back a lot of memories with me forever. Mom, Dad and family I love you very much.
