Today started off with a great breakfast at our Guest House and a wonderful devotion by Esther.  It was based on Phil. 4:10-14 . . . Contentment . . . how to develop contentment in our lives . . . it definitaly gave us something to think about during our van ride to our new "home" at the Catholic Guest House.  Once we were settled, we were off to the YWAM Mercy Development Girls Compound.
We painted the dinning room and kitchen and built shelves for the kitchen.  The kitchen needed some hand crafted counters before we could install the shelves.  When not actively working, we hung out with the girls when they came home from school.  There are 7 girls ~ ages 9 to 20.  We had a great time getting to know them.
Eventually, we walked to the Boys Compound and met them.  They were so excited to meet us.
We then headed back to the Catholic Guest House and went straight to dinner . . . and it was yummy!
In the evening, we sorted all of the donations and decided what we would take to the Girls Compound tomorrow.  We are so grateful to everyone who donated material to this Mission Trip!  All of the donations, everything from the soccer ball to frisbees and Children's Health Kits to Coloring Books is so much appreciated here!
We have to go for now . . . Peace and Blessings to you!
Life is too short and the planet is too big to stay in one place too long!

  1. Wow, what a phrase in the last paragraph about life being short. Isn't that so true. Oh how I wished I could be right there with you. Praying~
