Wow. I am in love with this place! There's no way I can describe my day today without going on for about 10 pages. So I'll cut short and just say that it was incredible. We spent most of the day visiting different elderly people who live close to Grace Village in Titanyen. I loved being able to see the joy that was brought to them simply by rubbing lotion on their feet and hands or by singing them songs. One of my favorite parts of today was actually tonight when we had worship. It was so much fun just to jam out with the team in the rain up on the balcony of the guesthouse. Definitely the best worship experience I have ever had.
Also I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sister, Emmers! I think I'm a day late but I'm slighty disorientated and kind of lost the ability to keep track of what day it is. haha but I LOVE YOU and hope you had an AMAZING day yesterday :) -Liz
Visiting with the children at Grace Village and then going to see the elderly in their homes was absolutely fantastic! I loved getting to know the kids. Going out of my comfort zone a little bit to rub Meme's feet was great! I loved every second of today. Loving on these people fills me with joy. I met a girl named Julie who sat by me, held my hand, and kissed my cheek a few times. When we were taking her back to Grace Village, she whispered in my ear "I love you, I love you so much". That brought a huge smile to my face and then she kissed me again. Then we hugged each other and when she was walking away, she kept turning around and waving at me. This was one of the saddest, yet most amazing moments of this trip so far. I have loved every thing that I have experienced so far and I can't wait to see what God will be doing in the days to come! God bless!!
tomorrow we go back to the home for children that are sick & dying, and to gertrude's special needs
orphanage... later in the day, we will visit a hospital...
