Day Two

25 May

The jetlag is hitting us hard today but that doesn’t really seem to matter. Today was about everything that has lead us here. Our hearts are so grateful and filled with joy. No meetings in government buildings, but we did have “meetings” that will change our lives forever.

Doing what we can to help, even if that means repeatedly removing twigs from little shoes ;)

Today I got to do exactly what I do best: be a Mama. All the children, except for the handsome gentleman in orange, are orphans. With the exception of the orphan care feeding program, many have no one to care for them. Some have an aunt or a grandparent to live with, but no Mama or Daddy.

So we spent the day doing nothing more than loving. We laughed and played and danced (oh my goodness do they dance! We just wiggled a bit…) and loved. What you are witnessing in these photos are years of dreaming becoming a reality. A real life, simply perfect, life changing dream coming true. I wish that I could bottle up the emotions that I feel right now and allow you to fully experience what that feels like. I know that I cannot, but I assure you that is unlike anything else in this world.

God is faithful and His promises are good. This today we absolutely believe and have been blessed enough to experience.

And we still have another week!! Many more people to meet and to love on. And many more meetings to come…..

 

PS: I promise to tell you more about the Dance Crew and the Orphan Care project…. When I have more usable brain cells and my grammar makes sense 😦
