arrived okay here. a very impoverished area. horrible, absolutely horrible. i just want to stay in my room. people coming up to the car in crutches, wheelchairs when i had my window down with their hand out. our driver told us that the gov't does nothing to help these people
..........met the boys...they're awesome. it's unfortunate that their living conditions are not. truly truly a third world environment. i understand by our driver who stated the other orphanages are a lot better. not even an oven to cook. they use a wood burning stove. i was told they are in need at the orphanage of dry milk, pnut butter, jam etc.
sam played soccer in what space they had inside with anteneh, he's going to DEFINITELY take our soccer playing daughter to task. ephrem came right over and gave me a 'little' hug. when sam showed them his ipad of you dancing ephrem said, "mom?". he also knew most of our kids when their picture came up. he remembers quickly. we stayed for about an hour and forty minutes then we needed to meet up with the agency's office to go over a few things. then we were off to the bank and converted come cash.
sam's knocked out and i am soon to follow.
i can't emphasize enough how much poverty there is here. the room here is great and as modern as any other place.
It breaks my heart to know our boys are not living in the best of conditions and that their orphanage is one of the worst.
Oh Lord, this is from you....I can feel it in my bones. Steve and Sam are seeing things, people and situations that will change their perspectives and lives forever. Lord, let their reactions to this be reactions that are long lasting, far reaching and that please and glorify You. Thank you Lord for Ephrem and Anteneh. Already, they have been such blessings to our lives.
