Many of the children that we work with do not even know when their own birthday is. Our team took the time today to tell these children that they were created by God who loves them unconditionally that He has a unique plan for each of them. We sang happy birthday to the children and had them line up as we passed out the gifts and allowed them to walk up as we celebrated the beautiful people that they are. These children are so grateful for the time, energy, and love that we have put into their lives.
We know this journey would not be possible without those of you back home. I cannot put into words the amount of joy and gratefulness they have for the gift of a bed, Bible and mosquito net. It is such a comforting thought that tonight the 110 children that received beds will no longer have to sleep on a worn piece of foam but instead a warm bed and a mosquito net to protect them from malaria.
The afternoon was full of tearful goodbyes as this is our last day with the children at Good Samaritan Home. The children there have become our friends. We look forward to sharing their stories with you when we return to America and share more in depth with what has been done in this incredible place. Please pray for the children. Pray that God continues to work in their hearts even when we cannot be there. Also please pray for our team as we process what we have seen. Thankful for what God has done.
