Today was filled with lovin' on our kids at Crossroads Academy in Vipingo. We began the day with our annual school picture. Look at those beautiful faces!
There are 367 children from preschool to grade 8 and 35 staff members. If you look closely you will see the Fox River team in the back.
The team spent the morning having fun with the kids, giving Bible lessons, doing crafts and playing some outdoor games. Here are a few pictures of the fun.
After lunch we had the privilege to distribute the gift bags sent to the students from their sponsors.
- 170 gift bags
- A re-usable shopping bag
- A Frisbee
- A sweet (candy)
- Choco Pie (like a moon pie)
- Pens and pencils
- Box of cookies
- Cooking oil
- 2 bars of soap
The entire family will be blessed by this gift. Thank you so much for all who donated just $10 to supply all of these blessings.
In the afternoon, we visited some of the homes of our grade 7 helpers. It was an enjoyable time of talking with them and learning more of their story.
All too quickly it was time to say our final good byes because this was the last day we would be in Vipingo. We have all grown to love the people we have met here and served beside for the last week. We've packed a lot into a little time that we will carry in our hearts for eternity!
