Just ten days after we arrived from spending a short summer in America we hosted a team from our church in the States….Times Square Church.
It was such a beautiful time, and such an intense time! WOW! We experienced things with this team that we have never experienced before with teams in the past. We even ended up going to a funeral for a street kid the day before they left. They got to experience life here from all its angles. They really got to get into what we do on a daily basis. One team member even helped take a kid to the hospital who was in desperate need of stitches in his mouth. Some kid had beat him up for the equivalent of 5 dollars.
We held community outreaches at Mrs. Nyrenda’s house. Mrs. Nyrenda allows us to use her yard to hold community outreaches for the neighborhood children. We launched that effort while the team from TSC was here.
We held an outreach directed at the girls on the streets. The ladies from the team set up a wonderful manicure table and brought fun crafts for the girls to come and enjoy. It was a pleasure to sit with these precious girls and allow them a few moments of peace to simply be teenage girls.
We had loud fun dinners every night in our house. Every night there were at least 18 people at our table enjoying company and food and laughter.
All in all we laughed, we cried, we sang, we poured our hearts out to God with each other and we enjoyed being with family. They left a beautiful piece of themselves here and we miss them so much. I will let the photos speak for themselves.
