This trip has been full of emotions unexplainable. When we first got here we were all exhausted but so excited. Today we had our first day in the villages and boarding school. In my village there are over 600 people many of them children. We have 20 kids who are not currently enrolled in school mostly because they cannot afford it. It only costs 5 U.S. dollars to enroll them in the school. But there are a few kids who are not allowed into the school because their father forces them to do child labor to pay the bills. Everyone that we see on the streets just stare and wave at us. And the girls in the schools come and hug us or hold our hands. Their laughs and smiles are flawless. They are all beautiful. One of the girls who had been following me around the whole day came up to me and kissed my checks and said, “I love you”. I have so much to learn from them and I can’t teach them enough. I already have so much love for these people and I know I will love them more and more when I get to know them.
