English Party

22 kids (plus the four Clow kids) hung out at our house for a 4-hour party! These kids who rarely, if ever, get out of their small village had a blast playing Wii, jumping on the trampoline, eating pizza, playing cards and just hanging out being kids! Our prayer is that they saw the Gospel being lived out in word and deed today!

Bethany was placed on ‘trampoline’ duty.  I think she ended up with the hardest job of the day!  She has quickly won the hearts of the kids.  And I think it’s safe to say that they have won her heart as well.

The older girls were ecstatic to meet Baby Anna for the first time.  Lindsey was in her element hanging out and loving on them. She has been an incredible mentor to this group of girls who adore her.

Sean was placed on Wii duty (of which he didn’t mind at all).  He has developed relationships with these boys - planting seeds that will be our blessing to get to watch grow.  It is very evident that they respect Sean - what a blessing he has been to them.

It was fun today watching John interact with the boys.  Teaching them to play ds games...
turn flips on the trampoline (notice the trampoline is sitting in water)....

playing in the street.... wait...WHAT?!?!? Yep, that’s Sean and John playing soccer in the street with the boys.  What else were they suppose to do? The yard was a lake!

 Thanks to John’s engineering mind in making a path through our “lake”  to the trampoline, Evan was able to teach a few of his tricks to the boys.

Josiah followed his father and played in the street....
as well as a little friendly card competition....


Bek grabbed a few of the girls for some dancing time....

while Abi joined in the fun...

And me.....someone had to take the pictures!
