The First Day

Hello everyone! This is my first trip to Moldova. Yesterday was our first day at the orphanage. I helped with sports and recreation. It was an absolute blast. We played soccer, volleyball, basketball, jumped ropes, badminton, and american football. The children are so sweet and adorable and they love any kind of attention they can get. Also, the children love cameras. In the bible lesson, the theme was to teach the children that they are made in God’s image. So we took pictures of them and printed them out last night to give it to them Thursday. God has really showed me how to step out of my comfort zone even though there is a language barrier, I can still show how much Jesus loves them by just being there for them. They began to open up yesterday and hope a little more today. Thank you!
