Today we had the great opportunity to build a mud hut in Vipingo! We were able to bless and pray for the future family that will be living there! Please pray for Joseph and his future wife and family!
We also had to say goodbye to the sweet friends we had made in Vipingo today. It was a very hard day for everyone on the team. Please pray for the friendships that have been made and that they would continue in the future.
Today we went to Vipingo and built a mud house. The frame and most of the roof was finished before we got there. As we were slapping the mud on, I met a girl named Louisa. When we were building the walls, Louisa was singing a gospel song. I though it was awesome that she was praising God, even in her situation. We were covered in mud as we walked back to the school. After I cleaned up, I had a chance to see my friend Zuena one last time. She had been by my side everyday that I was there. Saying goodbye was heart-wrenching. When I got on the bus I was tearing up and I figured since I was already emotional that I should open the letters I got from the kids. By the time I was done with the first letter I couldn't see the page because my eyes were filled with tears. Overall it was an emotional day.
So today was really good, but really bad. We got to help a family by building their house for them. It was really fun and exciting. We got to stomp in the mud and then smash it on the walls it was a very good experience. The bad part of today was that we had to say goodbye to the kids in Vipingo, it was a very emotional time because both of my girls ran to me while I was on the bus and grabbed my hand and kissed it it was so sad. I will miss them forever.
It was a happy/ sad day. This morning we went to Joseph Mallo's home and helped him build a mud hut. Which was a ton of fun by getting muddy, giving a family the blessing of praying for them. We finished the mud part but we didn't do the roof part. The second part of the day was sad because we had to say goodbye to our little friends at Vipingo. Everyone on the bus was wiping their eyes because they were crying, so much. I am hoping to see those kids again. After we got back from the hotel we all relaxed, it was so nice because we have had crazy days so far. Most of us played volleyball, went swimming in the pool and swimming in the Indian Ocean. I hope tomorrow we will have a good day, and that God will teach us a lot tomorrow.
Tomorrow we take Class 8 to Fort Jesus and participate in the Crossroads Fellowship Youth Outreach night! Please be praying that God be glorified!
God is moving in big ways here in Kenya in our team, thank you for praying!
The team members that hadn't been feeling well, are now much better!
