But, so far, we have fed a children's home a couple of times, had a fun celebration dinner with dancers and all, made school photos for children, prayed and handed out food to a village, hiked up rocks, laughed and watched movies and played games, had bible study, taken communion, played soccer, landscaped a home, built benches and school desks, done lots of dishes, met new people, eaten out and shared a lot of life together and we have also made mistakes, cried, asked for forgiveness and realized our inadequacy for the task at hand (and this is not all, I just have a short memory).
SO, with all of that, I am excited to see what God has in store for the next 9 weeks. Should be fun. No matter what, I am thankful for those of you who have prayed for us, who have partnered with us, who have allowed their children to visit and be a part of our community for this time period and I am thankful for those of you who are just going through life like we are with the realization that there is something bigger and we don't want to miss out. I am thankful because the idea of knowing there are others out there taking a day at a time as well brings a little bit of peace to my heart.
