Yesterday was a rough day. I mean, it was an incredible day, but it was emotionally draining and mentally overwhelming.
So, today, we took it easy.
After breakfast and morning devotion, we split the group in half: the girls returned to Chamarecc (where we built desks and stitched clothing on Wednesday) while the boys went to Transform Kenya's office for the Boys to Men mentoring program. (Oh, how much I want to make a "End of the Road" or "Water Runs Dry" joke, but I can't come up with one quickly enough. Bummer.)
We regrouped at lunchtime and headed out to feed giraffe at the Karan Giraffe Center.
The day quickly became focused on lots of photos and LOTS of photo-bombing (when someone jumps in to the background...oh, you'll see what I mean.)
This team loves each other.
Three different team members have already mentioned that they don't want to leave their new friends; they already know they will cry when they have to say goodbye at the airport, they don't know how people could do this over and over again...and there's still a week to go! I love how they love each other!
We leave for Kitale after church tomorrow.
I can't wait...mostly because I love Kitale, but also because it means I get to cross something off of my 30 Things List!
I'm not sure about the internet situation at our hotel in Kitale, so this blog may be dark for a few days. (Parents, we'll do our best to keep you updated via the Facebook group!)
