What an amazing first day with the kids!
It all began with an early morning church service and a (not so well kept) surprise visit from the kids!
We all got to wear our shirts together and see the kids perform a song that brought the entire team to tears.
This was followed by an absolutely epic carnival at the orphanage. We had 11 games and the kids could play each game to win tickets. They could then take turns in our “prize room” picking out whatever they want. It took some a little bit of time to realize they couldn’t bargain with us the way they would in the market, but all was well. Once again, the candy was the biggest hit, followed by soccer jerseys!
We also played some board games and had a big dinner on the volleyball court outside.
Great way to start the week!
