To day we are having a guest blogger - Erica is going to share the day from her perspective. We have completed another eventful, spiritual, and amazingly wonderful day. It is so hard to believe that we only have one more day left at our schools! It feels like we just got here. For some of us we are already planning how we will fundraise to come back next year, but for some, this may be the last time we see the wonderful children and staff.
We started our day by making foam visors with stickers and the kids' names on so we could call them by name. One student even brought Jason a visor that he made for him last year and ran to him when he saw Jason! How amazing is that!!!!
After we finished all the activities and the students ate lunch, the team was treated to THE BEST MEAL you will ever get in Africa. Chef Anne at Bomani school has to be the most amazing chef ever! She treated the team with what seemed like a 12 course meal! Lets just say chicken tastes WAY BETTER fresh, and by fresh I mean the chicken was walking around about 3 hours before we ate it!
After lunch some of the staff presented the team with gifts. We were all overwhelmed. These people have so little, yet they love to give gifts to those that have made an impact on them.
The team learned a whole lot more about working as a team while building the mud hut and what a thrill you can get out of working together, especially if it is to help someone in need.
Please continue to pray for the team as we still have not received all of our luggage and as we get ready to prepare ourselves for saying goodbye to our schools tomorrow. We will need God's strength to get through it.
