I had an awesome day with kids at the school. Even if I only listened and watched most of the time I still helped the kids do their work and played with them. The river swim was so refreshing after a long day. I cannot wait to go back to the school tomorrow and see the kids again. Having an amazing time, don’t want to come back.
Today was absolutely magnificent. There are honestly no words that describe what this trip has been to me. Going into the school was definitely an experience I won’t forget mostly because of the mixed emotions going through my head, but it was definitely an amazing experience. The kids were so kind and energetic (something I was definitely lacking). I can’t wait to go back tomorrow!
P.S. Yes mom, I’m still alive (believe it or not).
Yoo so today was pretty awesome. I love waking up here, it’s beautiful! Mom you would be so proud of me, I conducted a class of 5 year olds because their teacher was sick. It was Sunday school with so many more kids! Haha it was fun!! Washing in the river was so refreshing and amazing! Bathing in the middle of a jungle river is so cool… I wish we had a jungle. I guess I’ll just have to come back here again!
LOL (lots of love)
I’m still trying to process the fact that we’re actually here. I’ve missed this place for what seemed like so long and I’m thrilled to be back. Today, we plunged headfirst into a world of excitement and terror. Of course, I am referring to teaching toddlers. In all seriousness, it was amazing! The kids were so eager and happy to meet and interact with us, and we were so blessed to have this opportunity. We had so much fun working with them and with the teachers, and I can’t wait to go back tomorrow.
Truly, thy quest hath a magnificent gift and giveth thy heart blessings great in number. Ye feeble minded saith thanks with all thy heart, mind, and soul. In all seriousness, so far, it’s truly amazing. The kids in the school were great, luckily, I wasn’t alone in the class (props to the rest of you for doing it alone) thanks to Grace’s child whisperer skill (she practically rallied her own army of Belizean kids near the end). The river’s really nice (prefer it over a shower if it did the same job). That’s about it.
I have been so encouraged by this team from Emmanuel. These teens are filled with humility, curiosity, flexibility and a willingness to learn about sustainable service and missions (I certainly was not as open minded at their age!). We are slowly uncovering together God’s heart and vision for international work, and His mission of reconciliation. My prayer is that He would keep guiding us in building partnership with the community of Armenia and that, ultimately, He would be glorified. Thank you for praying for us!
