Today was filled with blessings. In the morning I worked with the guys joining rebar together with wire to make a support for the building they are working on in Mattaw. It was enjoyable to spend time with them in a relaxed setting. It is very peaceful out on the Mattaw property.
We had an early afternoon rain shower just after lunch. The medical team and the other ladies of the team spent the rest of the afternoon bathing and taking pictures of the children. They were so happy to have nice smelling raspberry lotion rubbed on them. They were all grins by picture time. Some of the children were so excited about the bath that they just started getting ready to get in. It was such a tremendous blessing to see them feeling so refreshed and good about themselves. The medical team also worked very diligently, teaching proper hygiene and making physical assessments of the children for medical records. God used a serious time of health and hygiene and turned it into blessings! Our God is so good!
All of the ladies just loved spending this time with them. We enjoyed this day so much, and it will be one of my favorite memories from this trip. We will be heading back to Nairobi in the morning and winding down for our trip home to the States. God bless you all and thank you for your prayers! I'll keep you posted until our final departure.
