The most memorable night of this trip was when we stayed the night at a church in a village. It was a really hot night and being in the church was even worse than being outside so we decided to sleep on the roof to try and stay a bit cooler. Well that went downhill fast because right after we moved up there it started to rain and we had to go back inside. We all slept in a tiny room with a single fan that was nowhere near me. I didn’t get any sleep that night and on top of that had to wake up early to help with church. It was a frustrating but rewarding night none the less. The church service was great because it was beautiful to see all the different cultures and languages come together to worship the one true God.
Coming here I had never worked with special needs children so that was different. It was challenging but rewarding to learn from those kids. They show Gods love and his relationship with us because of how they do not care who we are or anything; they just want our love and affection. After these experiences I would come back again for a short term to help with James and Sarah’s ever expanding vision. It will be hard to leave the kids but I will take so much away from them.
