Kenya 2009 - Day 4 at Brackenhurst

This will be a very short post as I am quite tired. We had another fantastic day with the kids: VBS, recreation time in the afternoon, watched a couple of movies, even had a hygiene clinic for the kids. They learned about germs, how to avoid getting sick, how to wash their hands, and how to brush their teeth. It was really a valuable time for the kids and they seemed to enjoy the lessons very much.

The kids also put on a talent show, something I've seen before but which never ceases to amaze me. The kids are so very talented! They sing songs, perform dances and recite Bible memory verses (some of them impressively long). Here is a short clip of the younger kids singing a song:

Aren't they awesome! The kids are really having a great time, I think, and they loved performing during the show. We only have one more full day and I'm trying to squeeze in as much time with the children as possible; it's kind of a desperate feeling, I hate to even spend one minute thinking about departing but I know it's coming. Pray for us all as we move to the time we have to say goodbye. It is a devastatingly difficult experience for many of us. In the meantime, though, it's all about fun and joy with the kids!

(Oh, and by the way, Jessica Garcia, our trip leader, is the best. Simply amazing! Pray for her as well as she has a very difficult task keeping this whole project moving in a smooth fashion. She is fantastic!)
