Today was our leadership day with grade 7. On our last day in each school we will have loads of fun with our kids with grade 7 being our helpers. We divide into teams to prepare a Bible story, craft and an outside activity for 3 different grade levels. We will have 3-4 helpers from grade 7 in each group. This is the day we get to know them and teach them the activity we have planned. Our goal is to pour into them as they are about to be the oldest students in the school.
One of our boys was given some money to purchase something for the children in Kenya. He decided to bring them something that is very popular in America: a fidget spinner. The kids learned about the physics behind the spinners and what they are used for. He had the opportunity to give them to all 6 - 8 grade students. They loved it!
We had some open time around lunch and the team just dove right in!
In the afternoon we visit the special needs school where Hanzi lives. Hanzi was in our school for many years as we prayed for direction to find a path for helping him. God lead us to this wonderful school with 800 special needs children and adults. Hanzi is fourishing!
We had an early end of the day today. Please pray for the team as they have two long days ahead of them before safari. Pray for continued health and safety. We are looking forward to having a fun and final day in Vipingo tomorrow.
