What a beautiful day to share our final day with our staff and kids in Vipingo! We began the day by taking our school picture.
We then spent the rest of the morning investing in our kiddos. Each class enjoyed a creative Bible lesson, a fun craft and some out door games.
While grade 7 helped our team members, grade 8 was able to spend the whole morning with Pastor Mark and Bev. They had some fun games, a challenge, small group discussion and a special treat from Wisconsin, s’mores!
A final lunch with the teachers and then we shared roasting marshmallows and making s’mores with them. What fun!
In the afternoon, we were able to walk into the village to visit the homes of some of our 7th grade helpers. We were humbled and blessed to see where they lived and be welcomed into their homes!
At the end of the day, we were so blessed to give 80 needy families a mattress so their children won't have to sleep on the dirt floor. They were so grateful! Thank you to all who donated to make this possible!
Mark presented the mattresses and talked about the rest we can have in Jesus. It was perfect.
The final goodbyes are always hard! As we leave Crossroads Academy, we are filled with joy to be a part of this partnership through which God is rewriting the story of hundreds of children!
