A group of winter visitors from Yuma blessed the children of Bethel. Here is a report from them:
Yesterday was Play day at Bethel and thought you might enjoy seeing the kids at play. The big blow ups are a huge success every year. The company that we rent them from was late so they where just arriving at the same time we where. We like for them to deliver in the morning so the kids are hungry and ready for lunch when we arrive, but not the case this year. As you know food isn't important when there's a GREAT toy just waiting for you outside the door so the time we got to spend with the kids during lunch was short and as the toy was so fresh in their day we didn't get to visit much with them after, but its all about play time for them on these trips to the orphanage so that is what they did after a very short lunch. Even Gibran didn't eat multiple sandwiches so we left lots of lunchmeat, cheese and other sandwich items for them to have for their dinner that evening.
The snack bags as always where a great treat and they where FULL. Each of the children also got a knit hat and a toy this year so that was fun for them too. We had a special gift for the girls this year that came in from Israel. It was crosses made of stones in Israel. We strung satin ribbon to them so the girls could wear them around there necks.
I've also included a couple of pictures of the crew that came down. There where 7 of us so the work load was light and two of the guys got to visit. - Sherry
