Today we headed off to the orphanage in Teopisca to take care of the kids so that the orphanage director and his wife could have a day off. They currently don’t have anyone to watch the kids to allow them to go out with each other. They have around 20 children of varying ages between 2 to 14. We got there around 10 and didn’t leave till 5:30. We were able to just hang out and play with all the precious little orphans for the entire day. David and I played more than our fair share of futbol (soccer). The girls painted some of the children’s faces, made them lunch and played various games with them. We taught them about how God is the Creator through a lesson on the 6 days of creation, songs, a craft and the story of Jonah.
It was a long precious day allowing the director and his wife to have a well deserved day of by watching the children. We left there feeling tired but glad to have had the opportunity to be with the kids for the entire day.
