Visit with the Orphans

On Sunday we visited the orphanage and took with us eight of the Christians. It was a moving experience to see these young men holding these sweet children on their laps and coloring with them. Ricardo, the Brazilian who's visiting with us, led them in songs which they loved. We'll definitely be doing this on a regular basis.

While it was a joy to see their smiles, it's also hard to walk away knowing that these children need love and family. It also made a huge impression on my kids, making them realize, at least to a degree how much they have. And not just in material things, but in having a mom and a dad, and a home of their own.
