Today was a very good day it started out with a lovely breakfast with our translators, then we proceeded to pile into a bus and drive for a few hours out of Bogota to a small orphanage. There were a few who got car sick and were not feeling very well, myself included. As soon as we pulled up to the orphanage I jumped out as fast as I could and quickly claimed a bed and slept for about two hours trying to rid myself of the awful sickness, and I succeeded! I was feeling much better after I woke up and ate lunch.

After lunch we went back up to the house to prepare our supplies for the lessons. When we finished a few of us went out to play with the kids for a while. Despite the fact that I do not play soccer very well I still went out there and gave it my best shot, and I must say the children were very supportive of my soccer skills, or lack there of. The team started with our rotations at 4:00pm.  We had four different rotations Game 1, Game 2, Craft 1, and Craft 2. We also had a Lesson time and then a Large Group, where all of the kids were wowed by the Muddy Glove skit. After Large Group we sang a few songs with the children and played with them some more. We played a lot of soccer with our new found friends. We all had to go inside the dining hall for dinner. After dinner we started washing the dishes which was a surprising amount of fun. When all the dishes had been cleaned we all headed back up to the house for devotions and prayer. Once we finished planning for tomorrow we started to get ready for bed which included some pretty wickedly cold showers, and a few screams. Over all it has been a great day and a great first week.

Thanks,
