Christmas in June!

Once again my daughter is posting this.  I still have no internet access :/ but it kind of adds to the whole experience of Africa!

Today we travelled to Bukoba, Tanzania to visit a baby orphanage and eat lunch at an ELCT (Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania) café.  We were also able to visit an albino orphanage this morning, which really was a neat experience!  I gave out many little dresses to girls and shorts to boys as well as hats.  That hats were a nice, usable gift for these albino children because they always need to have their heads covered.  I was also able to excite the children with balls, and matchbox cars.  The kids absolutely loved them and I immediately could see their faces light up when they saw the gifts I brought.  Once again thank you to everyone who contributed to the collection of gifts I was able to hand out! This is such a rewarding experience and I am have a fantastic time!

    Thank you for posting about how the children reacted to the things you brought them. I’m tearing up just thinking about it. You are living out one of my favorite passages of scripture: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27
