Yesterday afternoon we visited a Compassion International host site at the same church where we worshipped on Sunday. Our team gave a presentation including the mime team's version of "I Can Only Imagine." There was not a dry eye among us when the children joined in and did the movements along with the team.
Then, we handed out brand new backpacks and candy to the kids. They were so excited and thankful.
Today, half of our team watched the children from the home while the other half worked hard giving the home a thorough spring cleaning. I was on the babysitting crew so I got to love babies all day long. Here are some of their sweet faces.
Yesterday, as I was taking in all of the sights from our van window, I thought about what a gift from God this trip has been . He must really love me to have provided me with this opportunity.
Stay tuned...more to come (with pictures!)
