We had planned on leaving on Tuesday to fly even further south to Trichirupally to do some more well and building dedications with the Wells for Life. So Monday evening was the last night with the New Life kids and it was going to be hard. It's nice that the children have been so relaxed with us this trip. So quickly after the first initial "What's my name?" things got down to actual conversations and talks with them. One girl got so comfortable with me that while sitting on my lap talking to me, she was looking at the side of my head and had this really strange look on her face. All of a sudden she licks her finger and sticks it in my ear, digging around until she comes out with something and says "No good.". It was like she was primping me...what do you say to that except smile and thank you?!
Here is a list of the daily schedule, lots to do...(if you click the photo's they DO enlarge!)
This is taken from the now THIRD floor of the dorms that is now under construction. This seems to grow more each year. The first year it was only one floor with a second being built. Last Christmas we dedicated the student's new dorms rooms and now the third floor which will be two large rooms for where teams members will stay and also a worship center. Quite a nice view for to look out upon when praising God!
That's about all for now, it's early and we need to pack so we can begin the long journey home. I will have a few more posts after we get back and then I'm pretty sure Sandy will put her two cents in. The kids here are doing well and learning a lot. It always refreshes the soul to come here and see life, just a bit simpler than back in the states. I hope some of you reading might get a glimpse and take the plunge to go overseas on something like this. It would be an experience you never forget...for both you and the people you visit.
