Yesterday was a full day of JOY! We started out at Ekisa - the ministry that was started for special needs children. Going back there takes a person out of a bad mood instantly. The children and staff love each other so well and the happiness among the children transfers to everyone present. We were lucky yesterday. We were able to go with the staff to a resort swimming pool where the children are allowed to swim for a couple of hours. For some children, it is pool therapy. For all the children, it is a fun day that they experience summer fun as all God's children should be allowed to do. We left very tired and yet very energized and realized during devotion that the calling that God has placed in the hearts of those that serve special needs children is very special indeed.
We had lunch and visited the Agricultural Trade show fair. The team has not had very much time for R and R and this was a needed afternoon of fun. Fun that included a camel ride and crafts markets from countries all around Africa. We were all impressed with the agricultural booths and exhibits. Thousands of people were there: school field trips, families, kids, teams, etc. It was a fun afternoon full of laughter and heat that we spent with friends from Amani.
