Sunday was a great day. We split the team in 2 and attended both Leader UMC and Centenary UMC in the morning. Such joyous services with lots of singing and praying. Even though we had some difficulty understanding some of what was said, much of the services had the familiar elements from home. It was laity Sunday and the services were a little shorter than usual so we were on time for lunch!
After lunch Joe and Henry took us all out to visit our sponsor children. We were able to meet 4 of the children and visit with their families at their homes. Some of the children were a little timid when first meeting their sponsors, but they quickly warmed up. We carried a portable printer with us and were able to take pictures and print them right there so that the children received a photo of them with their sponsor.
This was the second time Kristen was able to visit her sponsor child, Raymond. He was not timid, but came running out of the house to greet her. They even played a little football (soccer) with the ball she brought for him.
We are now on our second week of our projects and can't believe how quickly the time is going by.
