It’s been a rainy day here in the Mole but that hasn’t stopped us from being His hands and feet today. We started our morning with a devotional from the book of Matthew reminding us that Jesus calls us out of our comfort zone, which was very fitting for today as the rains came down making everything just a little more difficult.
Afterwards the kids started showing up for Children’s Church. We had them take palm leaves and wave them like the Israelites did. It was heart melting to see them singing Hosanna, Hosanna. Hosanna!
The orphans showed me that it’s not what you have that people care about, it’s the kind of person you are and the quality time you spend with them.

So today my team went to the town Savan Mole for VBS. We gathered up the kids from the town and headed to the school for games.
This morning called for a little more energy as we pried ourselves from the sheets.
I woke this morning before the sun. Not wanting to rise yet, I laid in bed thinking about the devotional Morgan gave yesterday morning. She talked about the body of Christ and how we are all vital parts of this body. I began to pray for our team, that they feel valued, that they come to know the part that they are.
