A View from the Youth- Jordyn Daerr

Let’s just start off by saying I absolutely love this place. Every where you go you are greeted with a hug and kiss, or for guys a fist bump. The children are so loving and shine so bright. They always have a smile on their face and are ready to learn what you bring to them. These past couple of days I have seen God in every smiling face. They are always wanting to help you out even if it’s just picking up something you dropped, they are right there to get it for you. 

Jesus has been everywhere. He shines through the kids as they are so willing to help and serve others around them. I have made a lot of new little friends but there is this one little girl that really melted my heart. Her name is Eileen that sure found a way to my heart. I got to spend tons of time with her and one day I told her I had to leave. So she gave me the normal hug and kiss, but it was just the normal thing, she whispered into my ear that she loved me and she said it in English. It brought me to tears. I never knew how much you could love someone you just met and barely know and can hardly have conversation with. 

Being here is nothing like I expected it to be, it is better than I could ever imagine! On the first day teaching was a lot harder than we had planned it to be. We had to change a lot of things but God was there by our side giving us patience and helping us work around and still get His word across. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us from here on out.
