Its hard to believe we’ve been here four days now – the time is really flying as we continue to work at the Little House of Refuge. There are seven boys here at the orphanage. One thing they don’t have here is a male role model, so our Vacation Bible School focus for the boys has been on biblical manhood and what it means to be a man of God. It’s been so fun to watch all of the men in the group get excited about teaching these young boys. We continued to teach the girls about how God created them to be special, and as I looked around at them laughing and having fun making crafts I realized that tomorrow would be our last day with them. I could feel my heart getting heavy at the thought of saying goodbye. We’ve been a family for just a short season, and I’m reminded that after the goodbye hugs and the tears, there is an eternal “see you again” promise. The hugs seemed to be tighter as we left today, and on our bus ride back to the hotel I made the decision to sponsor one of the children at Little House. Her name is Lupita. I can’t wait to tell her tomorrow that I’m her sponsor!
