I am still alive!

OK, so I know it's been a while, but I have been really busy with work. I am currently relaxing on the beautiful island of Lanai at an amazing resort. We love you auntie Yvette. It's much more peaceful then the resort on the beach. Less people, more quiet, lots of green, and relaxing things to do. We just took a walk in the gardens and had a cappuccino by the fireplace. I'll post some pictures later.

So I know it's been a long time since I got back from Romania, but it sure is still fresh in my head. I posted the pictures from that second week. We worked with boys from a state placement center who have some kind of mental, learning, or mild physical disability. It was a challenging week, but with the help of God we survived. It was nice to see some of the kids I've seen in 2003, but they sure have grown. The challenges of that week included stealing, fighting, and cursing. The week was also exhausting after we thought the first week was challenging, but after looking at the second week the first was nothing compared to this.
God gave us the patience and rest we needed, and we were able to survive and love on those kids even in time of disappointment.

So anyways, here are some pictures from the second week of camp.
Enjoy.

Thanks for the pictures. It sounds like it would have been a very challenging week. Hope you're having fun this weekend.
