Africa - July 7
Sleep in!!! A perfect way to start my morning! Rachel, my room buddy and I stayed up until 2 am talking about this crazy journey we have been on this far! This is truly the most amazing experience I've ever had! My heart is so huge down here and my cheeks hurt from smiling. As much as I was thinking I was coming on a mission trip to bring them supplies and help them...I couldnt have been more wrong! What Africa has taught me is so much more important in life than the things we brought for them! I have learned that it's okay to be different and show your spirituality, happiness comes in any shape, wealth, nation or skin color and things...they are positively just that...things. We finally had the opportunity to lounge around a little bit this morning and play with the children that are always running around the house! Rhode, Esta (Ester), Bene (Bernard) and a few others have been glued to my hip because I taught them how to play games on my iPad! Thanks Kamden for having Auntie download letter apps because these kiddos loved them! I have had to charge it every night because they pass it around all day taking turns!
