Whistle while we work….
On Thursday, we began our service with the Youth Cares/Safe Haven ministry by doing manual labor. In the morning, the entire team, plus some of the Malawians, stacked bricks for a few hours. We were stacking bricks on their new piece of property. The bricks will be used to build the new boys homes to relocate Safe Haven (currently in a rented house). We were sore when we were finished but it was worth it. In the afternoon, we visited with one of the Youth Cares after school programs. The children ranged from the preschool age all the way up to 8th grade. We again performed the Do Not Touch Skit, which the children thought was hilarious, introduced the kids to frisbies (thanks Bekah and Randy), and taught many of them how to make balloon animal dogs. It was just precious when the children had their balloon dogs. They were all running around yelling Woof! Woof!
