Today we went to see Grace Village the orphanage that is being built in Titanyen. On the way to see the orphanage we stopped to see the mass gravesite it was incredibly humbling to see all the lives that were lost in the earthquake. The crosses represent all the lives lost, the number of crosses is only a small representation of all the lives lost. It was so sad to think of all the people who lost family members. I pray the people who lost family will find comfort in knowing they will see them again in heaven.
Grace Village has made so much progress! The orphanage is going to be so beautiful. The feeding center is going to feed so many people and the children will be able to run and play overlooking the beautiful view of the ocean.
We went to Gilliums to see the kids and measure them for uniforms. Jackoline was so cute sining all the time, we got some really cute video of her just singing her little heart out. When I picked he up she ws so cuddly, she loved hanging upside down and being tickled. She didn’t want any of the other kids to play with me she wanted me all to herself. She would hit them because they were touching me, little stinker. It was so great to see the kids again.
Tonight went to Fanfan’s bible study. It was great to worship with them. There was a little boy sitting next to me who was so cute he was so passionate about worship. He would tell me what I was suppose to be doing ;stand up , raise your hand and wave it…it was really cute how he wanted to make sure I knew what to do. It was so great to expirience their faith and worship, so encouraging.
