Children Heading Home!

It is unbelievable how quickly 6 weeks can pass. I had full intentions of posting pictures of activities during their stay but we were so busy that time just slipped by. Instead I have gathered a some pictures of a few of the children and will post them here. I wish I had pictures of all of the children .. but this is what I do have. I’ll start with some of the less than fun events, but it should be noted that our community is fantastic at stepping up to help these children. We have Dentists, Doctors, Optometrists, Specialists in and out of town as well as any number of retail stores and businesses too numerous to mention here, that all pitch in to help! And they do it out of the goodness of their hearts! Here’s to all of them!


And here are the kids having fun:












Well the six weeks sped by and this morning the bags were packed and prepared. We held the weigh-in at the Bethel Christian Reformed Church. The weight restrictions were much lower this year and I am sure everyone struggled as much as we did with what to send and what to leave out.


I think even Red Green would have been proud of the amount of duct tape used this morning:


I think we got almost all of the children and interpreters in this shot:


Of course there were plenty of hugs to go around too!


Maybe the next 46 weeks will go by just as fast!
