It was truly moving to see how much the kids craved a kind touch or a hug. The people in this village are incredibly strong and can move through anything as they have experienced many natural disasters and yet they continue to rebuild after each hurricane.
When we got there we split into 2 groups and went to different ends of the village, walking hut to hut and meeting the people. We would talk to them, play with the kids, and ask them what we could pray for them.
Today was the last day of VBS here and walking the kids home and saying good bye was hard, honestly. I’ll miss those lil baby angels. WOWIE I have learned so much from the kids here, I am so humbled.
Tonight we closed our time out together by having a bonfire on the beach. We roasted hot dogs….worshipped & shared devotions.
Karenage sits right on the water and has a beautiful people. We were able to see 36 patients and pray with most, if not all of them. We painted fingernails, colored pictures, blew bubbles and had lots of fun playing with kids in the village.
It will be hard to say goodbye to the orphans, but knowing when we return in the future they will have grown so much makes us all so happy.
