A brief post…
The rest of the team arrived Monday after approximately 24 hrs of traveling. Peter, Linda, Timmy, Chloe, Jen Chon, Min-Jung now have joined the rest of the team. Shortly after arriving the whole team had a delicious BBQ at Pastor Park’s home. A very funny meeting entirely in K-eunglish (broken Korean + broken English). In the end, it seems that we all are more on the same page in planning for the Agape Youth Bible camp. Tomorrow, several team members will be heading to Hope Village orphanage to visit the 90 plus orphans that we developed some relationships with last year and then will go into the neighborhoods of many of the Agape Youth for house-visits.
Hi New Hope!
Most of the team spent the morning at Hope Village, in a poor area of Windhoek. Many were return visitors and the kids immediately recognized us. Once again, the kids seemed more hungry for hugs and affection more than food or water. Just as last tim they all seemed much smaller than normal for their age and the kids that we recognized from last year did not seem to have grown. But yet, they seemed very very happy. Strange. Timmy said that he felt a little guilty because they are lacking so much yet they still seem happy and smile. A love gift of $500 was given to the orphanage. Thank-you New Hope Fellowship. Then part of the team again went to the homes of Agape Youth group kids to encourage them to sign up for the coming bible camp and to meet their legal guardian and their families. A tiring but fruitful day.
