Well we have successfully topped last years bus ride to the Mole by about 2-3 hours totaling about 15-16 hrs. There was no mango truck flipped over, just mud. The bus got stuck and it took a lot of digging and then the missions truck to get us out. No one was sick from it this year and everyone endured it. We arrived into the Mole just before 3 a.m. A full 24 hrs of traveling and little sleep didn’t stop us from jumping into the flow this morning.
Phil and I helped watch the orphans at the beach while the rest pampered the caregivers. It has been amazing to see the children again and even have some of them come up to us in the streets in remembrance of our time with them last year. After lunch we had some free time but with a house being built I had to jump in. Spent the afternoon running electrical and prepping for the plumbing, digging a trench. After dinner we will be having a movie night for the kids with popcorn. I will take it a bit easier tomorrow and get ready for the week. I love you Jamie, Ethan and Brielle!!!! Look forward to hearing from you and sharing more as the week goes on.
I have had a wonderful trip so far. We got here safe and sound. There was another group when we got here. I love you and miss you so much Grandma and Grandpa. ~Genesis
Bon swa! It was an amazing morning this morning. Lauren, Veronica and I pampered the orphanage workers by washing their feet, massaging their feet with lotion, and painting their fingernails and toenails. They seemed to love it! With what they do, taking care of 30+ children, God bless them, that was the LEAST we could do!
This afternoon has been a little lazy. We took naps (to make up for the 3 hours of sleep last night) and then planned some for working Children’s Church tomorrow. Tonight we are going to watch “Horton Hears a Who”, so the rest of the team is inviting the town kids to come watch, as I work on some stuff for tomorrow morning. We appreciate your prayers!!!
On a personal note, I love you Joel, Stephanie, Indy, Ashley, Mark, Kiersten, Nick, Jonathan, Jaclyn and Madison! Love to all the rest of my family! Hope to hear from you on the blog tomorrow night! ~Jennifer
Walter & Jim Jackson – the amazing electricians we had this week left this afternoon and are already in Miami! The Olton group will be overnighting in PAP tonight and flying to the states tomorrow. We miss them all! It was a great week of ministry!!
