Fun, Fireworks & Flabbergasted Foreigners
Yesterday we arrived at the New Life Children’s Home. The 80 or so children greeted us with flowers, music and even fireworks! The kids are gorgeous and steal your heart within minutes.
Today we visited the, almost complete, Lepers Colony Housing Project. Those visiting for the first time were not confronted by the poverty and hopelessness encountered by past teams. Instead they were overwhelmed by the grandness of these amazing homes and the vibrance and gratitude of the people. For those of us, like Beth and Brent, who have seen the homes in construction, we were totally flabbergasted at the end product!
"Today will go down as one of the best memories I have. To see the "New Life Colony " almost complete was a very emotional experience. These forgotten people who were the least in society and now their new homes stand out as the best. Well done Reaching Thousands and to all who contributed."
- Beth Holder
Builders are working through the night to finish the homes by the opening ceremony this Saturday. Tomorrow the team will be joining them to help paint. Bring on Saturday, we can't wait!!!!
