The Boys Day to Serve

Today the boys had a great experience. They were "in charge" of helping to deliver and hand out food for some orphans, widows and lepers of a local missions sponsor program. The climbed in the back of our friends pick up truck that was loaded with maize, rice, beans, salt, fish, soap and oil. We drove to several different locations where those being helped lived and the boys helped read the distribution sheets and hand out the correct allotments. By the end of the morning they were ready for a good shower because they were dirty, dusty and had weevils (little bugs that live in the corn) crawling all over them. But they had a good time and it was great for them to serve others and see how little others have to live on for a month. I count it a blessing that they had this opportunity. It is our prayer that they will grow up feeling empathy, having compassion for and loving others.
