This was day 2 at the orphanage and what an amazing day! We furnished 32 beds to some beautiful boys and girls today. Once we finished making up the beds, the children came into their rooms and sat on their beds. We had the opportunity to spend some time with the kids and listen to what they thought about their new beds. Three of the girls we met were sisters and they sang a beautiful song for us. The smiles and beautiful faces of these precious children just make my heart melt.
In the afternoon, we played outside with the children… thanks to God giving us a beautiful sun-shining day! We played many games including a childhood favorite among many countries, duck-duck-goose. The younger ones definitely enjoyed that and let’s just say that my legs don’t run as fast as they once did. After playing with one group of younger kids, this one precious little girl came up to me and gave me a HUGE love hug! It was the sweetest moment of the day for me!
After returning back to the church from the orphanage, we were blessed to experience a worship service with the church who has partnered with Sweet Sleep and the local orphanage. What a wonderful experience it was to meet some of the local people and hear about how the church is ministering to the kids at the orphanage.
God is so amazing and it is such a blessing to see His Holy Spirit at work in so many ways and in so many places.
