Today was VBS at the project. Letty did an amazing job organizing the event. There were about 117 children who showed up to make picture frames, have a fluoride treatment, sing songs, read stories, play games, and paint a mural that will be hung up on the wall of the newly built classrooms.
The team did a wonderful job and the children had fun and were exhausted by the end of the event.

Part of the team continued working on building the walls of the classroom. There has been a lot of progress made and the classroom is looking great.

A couple of the team members went to see their sponsor child’s homes. Meeting the sponsored children has been amazing and at times very emotional. The lives of the families and the hardships they face have been difficult to see at times. The sponsors have also seen first-hand the difference child-sponsorship makes in the life of a child. Not only have we experienced the hope within the child, but also the impact it makes in the lives of the family as well as the community.

The time is going fast and tomorrow is the last day to work on the classroom. The children are planning a farewell party for us. It’s going to be another great day!
