Nokken Team # 3 Day 5 Saturday

Saturday was our second water truck day. We set out for the day, filled up the water truck and went to our first stop. Just as the first water truck day the kids were shouting “Hey you” while they anticipated us to pick them up. Water truck days are a way for us have a glimpse of what life is like in Cite Soleil. We often forget there is not an unlimited source of water. These days are not only filled with delivering water, but showing an abundant amount of love to the kids. It is also a day where the children praise our all-powerful God. As many of them would sing “God is so good, God is so good”. We may be the ones delivering the water but it is God who is the true provider.

                After two water truck stops, we ended the afternoon with a trip to an orphanage. There was something very special about this orphanage, it was a depiction of family. It took a little longer for these children to warm up to us but after they did, we enjoyed an afternoon of singing, playing, drawing, and cuddling with these amazing and beautiful children.   

                Finally, we ended the day playing soccer with the neighborhood boys and team time. Sadly, there is only one day left but tomorrow we get to go to church and rejoice in the Lord for the amazing week he has provided us with.
