The past two days have been quite an adventure for our team.  The plans we had put in place were completely put aside, as the part we were to play in God's bigger plan was more than we could have ever imagined.  A local orphanage in Titanyen was closed on Thursday, and as a result, Grace Village received 15 new children!  It was an experience our entire team will never forget, as we welcomed the children to their new home!  

Last night most of our team stayed at Grace Village to help with getting the new kids settled in. This morning when we went to Titanyen we met the team and kids at Mission of Hope Medical Clinic. These kids and their little bodies are so fragile, so sick, so malnourished that it just breaks my heart. They had been moved so many times in such a short period of time that when we got back to Grace Village and told them that they were home, they were just all smiles and so cute! A group of us went to help deliver meals to the elderly and I could tell that they were just so happy to see us.

Although our original plans have been changed and things didn't go as planned for this team, God closed some doors so other would be opened and we could make a HUGE difference in the lives of those kids.
