Our final day of service was incredibly sweet and meaningful. A few of the pregnant girls at the maternity home delivered babies during our time there, and invited us to come back and meet their little girls. There were lots of tears as we held these precious babies and thought about the life ahead for each one of them. We prayed for their futures, for protection over their families, and for provision so they can live in a healthy community.
We also had the privilege of feeding 700+ kids at God Cares Primary School. We were all shocked by the process and incredible organization in making this happen (seamlessly!) each and every day — and in less than 30 minutes! We also found extra time to play and dance with this fun group of kids.
Before we headed out to the airport, we finished our last medical clinic at Bulamu Children’s Village.
It was bittersweet to say good-bye and to know that our time has come to an end. As we drove away, our vans were filled with much emotion and many team members were reluctant or resistant to leave. The days were long but way too short. The moments were precious, complex, and meaningful. We are all returning to the States as changed people with new passions and an incredible desire to return, as soon as possible.
