Today was our final day with the children at the Buckner Orphanage. I could tell you so many stories about these kids. I will sum it up with a few words and a video.
If you have never cried when you said goodbye to an orphan, you are missing some beautiful pain.
Jesus lives strongly among those who others throw away. Side note: One of the babies we were with today was LITERALLY found in the trash. That makes me want to crack some heads.
The people of MCC are physically, spiritually, and emotionally putting love on these kids. We can feel it. So can they.
I am with a team of selfless people who represent a great church of selfless people.
The sound of an orphan laughing is a little bit of heaven. When they all laugh at the same time, it is like a choir of angels.
Nate, Rachael, and Jody will head home tomorrow. Shawn and I will connect late tomorrow night with a team from Compassion International. Beginning Tuesday they will lead us on a vision trip of their work in Guatemala. Stay tuned.
