Venezuela ~ Day 7

Ben —  July 1, 2011 — 9 Comments

Last night was a blast, we had about 3 hour fiesta that included awesome food, laughing, and dancing. Had anybody observed the amount of smiles and laughter that happened last night, they would never be able to guess what kind of history these boys have. For that I am grateful that we could be a part of that night full of joy for them. I am also grateful that we all had a blast even after the amount of work we did the past few days.

Now today, we get to start off at the crack of dawn traveling 4 hours to the beach. From what I’ve heard this beach is amazing, and once again we’ll be spending it with the boys for our last day together.

I don’t exactly know what the general feeling is because we’re all working on at most 4 hours of sleep, but I’m sure there are mixed feelings of sadness because we’re leaving tomorrow, along with hope that what we’ve done leaves a lasting impact.

I am confident that even after we leave this place God will be doing a good work, it is evident in the staff as well as the boys.

Praise God.
