Our time here is coming to an end and we have very mixed feelings. Today we went on a 20 minute boat ride to a village out on the point. It is a place that gets hit hard by the hurricanes. We did a bracelet craft and played games. You can play soccer over here and get a crowd every time. They always want to know if they can have our ball. I would like to give one to every one.
We had market and then had the very best time of all, we took the children from the orphanage swimming. It was so much fun to see them explore the water and the sand. Some are very brave and will run right in. Others tip toe in a little at a time. They jump and splash everyone in sight. The sweetest are those who just want to be held and sway with the waves. Several fell asleep. They so crave human contact.
On the church front the rafters have been poured and they are letting them cure. It will take a couple of days. But they are not stopping; they went to get more gravel to use in the building. The houses have two sides done with stucco. I asked today and they said it would dry in about 2 days.
Tonight we are going to the town square to have a movie night. We have been telling the towns people about it all week. We made popcorn this afternoon. I am sure it will be very interesting
AS I started out we all have mixed feeling. Some would like to stay for another week and some forever. But I think that most of us are filled up and worn out and ready to come home.
Ashley, I miss you and the kiddos so much!! Today has been the worst for me as far as missing y’all. I can’t wait to tell you so much! I miss talking to you. Give the kids a hug and kiss from me and tell them mommy will be home soon and I have them a little gift.
Nannie I love and miss you and can’t wait to tell you all about our trip! I can’t wait to get home and tell everyone about it, but it’s going to be so hard leaving here. I will definitely be back!!
