2nd Day - Thursday, July 23rd

First, let me apologize for the lateness of this post. My goal was to blog each day, but the internet has been painfully slow. Check back often, as I'll try to post more photos.

Here's what happened on Thursday.

Chrissy Miller's report on Activities:

"We had lots of activities going on today. The kids enjoyed building with the Legos and making airplanes and other things. We tried to tie dye t-shirts, and we hope that our water was warm enough to do the job. We will know tomorrow if it worked. Trish worked with groups making books - the older kids really enjoyed this. Two other activities that the kids did were organized games and an obstacle course, and a few tried making beaded book marks. This was done with kids that were a bit young, but the older kids will get to do it next week."

Kathy Starbird's report on VBS:

"Today in VBS we learned that Jesus calls us to be fishers of men. We've had fun with the fishing theme, but today we fished for people.

Children from WRCC created wonderful paper fish that we brought with us. Kim and Kaityln Duchein placed in the beautiful fountain here at the orphanage (don't worry, the fountain was dry).

The children had an incredible time standing at the fountain fishing for children.

Thanks to Miss Lynn for all your great ideas and the Spanish coloring books!"

The car port construction continues. Today we worked on finishing the cut in the lumber. The cement arrived in very nice pickup truck, and work began on setting the posts for the walls into the concrete.
