This morning we went to church at one of our partner churches.
I have been to church in a few of the countries we work, but never a church where pretty much the whole congregation was made up of kids. . .there were maybe 30 adults.
It was super fun and full of energy as you can imagine!!
As I sat behind the kids listening to the announcements for the morning two little girls came to sit with me.
One sat next to me and the other climbed right up in my lap.
Meet Meredith and Beth
Meredith was the calm quiet. . . behaved one.
SWEET AS CAN BE
Beth was the troublemaker in all of the cutest ways. I mean seriously
SWEET AS CAN BE
and check out her eyes in this video. . . troublemaker see. . .she’s a funny one.
They sat and played with my hands, my camera, my hair, my freckles, my rings, my shirt. . .
At times Beth would get tired and just fall back into my arms. . .
it was a beautiful and sweet time of friendship.
As we were leaving Meredith raced out to the bus to say bye again. . .
I opened the window
And Meredith said with excitement
If you ever see James and Caroline tell them I say hello and greet them in the name of Jesus
I asked her if that was her sponsor she responded with a huge smile and a HUGE YES!
She went on to say. . .
They live in Canada, Will you go there? Please tell their children hello too. I love them so much!
So if you have ever wondered. . .
After church we headed to a super fun day of playing with sponsor kids… a time for our bloggers that sponsor to just hang out for the day.
IT . WAS . AWESOME .
YOU must go and read my tripfriends posts. . .

I have always wanted a giraffe kiss, dont ask… Shaun is also thoroughly confused.
I decided to go back and say one last farewell to said mr. giraffe and got a SURPRISE kiss on the lens ( no lie!)
and after wiping some slobber off i am thankful it was my lens and not my cheek.
So MUWAH from said giraffe and Kenya
