DATELINE: OCTOBER 8, 2011
What a day. We started off heading to the bazaar to get fruit and then over to get ice cream to take to the orphanage in Kemin. We picked up 100 ice cream cones, 60 bananas and 60 oranges and off we headed to Kemin with a van load of helpers.
Our LAMb team consisted today of our primary team (Madlin, Natasaha, Zukrah, Larissa, Tanya, Lynn and Ruby). We also had with us Madlin's son David and two helpers from the Youth Gymnasium Church - Amos and Leana. Our driver Isar got the fun of dodging lots of animals today as well.
We had two stops - Kemin Orphanage for Disabled Children and Kemin Senior Home. All were going to receive the treats...and all did. All were very happy and very excited.
At Kemin we were eager to spend time with the children in residence. Our first activity was to make the shapes as seen in the video and then to watch the video by Max Lucado, that reminds the children they are all very special. Lynn shared the video and the rest of the team worked the crafts. It was a day of loving and reminding the children they are loved and very special.
