As I was heading up to my room last night after posting, I kept thinking things like, "Oh I should have said that,"or "I should have worded that differently." or "I should have linked to Compassion straight from my post." There are just so many experiences and things I would love to share, but there just isn't time, the right words just don't seem to come, and sometimes (i.e. at night when I am tired) my brain just moves a little slow! If you have any questions about this trip or Compassion feel free to leave one in a comment and I will do my best to answer.
So, it is Wednesday morning. I woke up at 5:30 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep so I decided to get up which is why I have time to write this post before the day starts.
At the two Compassion centers we visited yesterday, when we arrived we were treated like rock stars. It was a very warm welcome. We were then treated to a program. One young boy ministered to us by reading John 3:16 and then shared a message on that verse. Children sang and acted out skits. And then at the end of each program, a surprising thing happened (at least to me). The children placed their hands on us (on me) and prayed for us (me). I was so touched. I was so blessed.
Today we will be visiting another center. Then tonight we will be having dinner with kids who have graduated from the Compassion program. I am looking forward to the day.
