Saturday we got to go to a different orphanage near Belti. This orphanage was much smaller and the kids were precious. Before going to this orphanage we got to go to METRO (like COSTCO) and bought a bunch of games and toys for the kids. We played the entire day with the kids. Some of us played volleyball while others played soccer and others played tag or made bracelets. Much like last time other people interviewed the kids at this orphanage. These kids were absolutely precious. They loved playing with us and we loved playing and laughing with them. Being out in such a small village was really different. These kids were starving for our attention and love. It was heartbreaking to see them wanting so badly for us to love on them and play with them. Many of these kids had developmental problems and some could hardly read or write. It was a very different experience than compared to the other kids we have visited.
The night was very different as well. We simply got to spend good quality time with each other. It is just such a blessing to be surrounded by beautiful women of God that are capable of speaking truth into your life. I am thankful for the team that surrounds and uplifts me. We truly are the 12 best friends that anyone could have! I thank God for these women of God who have joined me in a mission to empower the women of Moldova and are willing to humble themselves to serve one another.
