Disclaimer: These daily blogs are based on journal entries during my two and a half week trip broken into seven installments. Over the next week, you will learn more and more. The idea behind doing it this way is so you can go through the process of experiencing a portion of my experiences in the same progression of events that I did. The goal is that by the end of the seventh blog, you will have the context to understand why and how I intend to continue serving these people.
New Country, New Name: Day 3 -- August 6, 2013
So many months of preparation mentally, financially and spiritually and we are just hours away from being with these orphans. It has been a long time since I have worked with younger kids. Growing up, I was involved in the infant-preschool ministry at my church, and worked in a childcare at a Christian family camp several summers ago. I love kids, so I am so excited to get back to serving and caring for children. I am thankful for the opportunity to be used by God and am looking forward to seeing what God wants to change in my heart, all for His glory.
