We have come to the close of our 3rd day here in Terekeka.
Yesterday we were able to go down a long jungle-like path where I saw a monkey but Gail was too slow. We were able to officially set foot in the Nile! Luckily there were no crocodiles or any other water creatures.
This morning we were able to play with some of the younger children that are not old enough to attend the school yet. They belong mainly to the workers at the compound. We sang some songs, danced, and even tossed around a “futball.”
Today we also had our first trip into the town. We visited the hospital and went through the market and even met the town “crazy lady.” The trip into town takes about 30-40 minutes because of the roads. The roads are pretty bad. We HAVE to use a 4W drive vehicle to even have a chance of getting in and out of the compound.
Later today the kids gathered around Gail and I while I played some songs on the guitar. They really enjoy guitar music and singing in general. They have 3 drums and the smallest of the kids is leaps and bounds better than I am.
A prayer request that we have right now is that we can figure out a way to bond better with the older kids. The younger ones really just like having fun and are open to do anything with us.
We are still trying to find where we fit in here, but we have some opportunities to do things that we enjoy and things that will push our skills a little.
Thank you for taking time to read this and look at the pictures. We really appreciate all your responses.
In Christ’s Love,
