The group spent 3 days a week with our boys at our school teaching and guiding them. They successfully completed final term exams and we took them on their annual school trip where they spent the day visiting the giraffe center, elephant orphanage, and Crocodile Park. Some of our artistic boys also completed drawings for greeting cards and wrote beautiful letters of gratitude. The boys also had many opportunities to speak with us privately about feelings and challenges. We are happy to report the boys are doing very well and were overjoyed to have this month with us and likewise. The July 2009 mission was a success in that our days there were fulfilling and our boys are so very grateful. We were truly blessed in every moment we had in Kenya.
The other three days, we had the pleasure of taking our mission to Mother Teresa’s House of the Disabled. There we spent our mornings doing laundry, brushing their teeth, doing dishes, feeding and spending time with patients, as well as, making and cleaning beds. Mother Teresa’s House is a beautiful and inspiring place, as well as quite serene.
