We Have Arrived!

Our morning started out with an airport arrival time of 3:07am.  The good news is that our lines were short and the flights went smoothly.  What a wonderful adventure!  We have now arrived, moved into the guest house and spent the afternoon sorting our generous donations. 

We were treated to a wonderful dinner of spaghetti, french fries and fresh fruit along with their local beer.  As a non-beer drinker, I was pleasantly surprised!  Prestige has a new costumer!!

The best part of our day was after dinner when we took glow sticks down to the tent city near our guest home.  It was incredible to see the children and receive so many hugs.  There are always hands to hold as you walk through this extreme poverty.  The smiles on the children's faces are a stark contrast to the tents and muddy paths.

Now, we are turning in for an early night to catch up on sleep lost due to the excitement of our trip.  More to write tomorrow as we will be heading out on the water truck for the day. 

We can feel your prayers and know that we rest safely in God's hands. 

Until tomorrow,
