We began the day by touring a slave fort from the 18th century. It was very difficult to be on location and hear of the atrocities that were done to the people of this land. We then headed west to a small local African beach resort called "Meet Me There". They paddled us across the lagoon to the beach. The boys loved the huge, crashing waves. They body surfed and played hard like boys. They enjoyed watching Dad get knocked down by the big waves. We also played a little catch with the football. One of the highlights for Ben and Faith was the little puppy that lives at the resort. They had great fun playing with it.
We enjoyed our day at the beach. It was refreshing and needed after two weeks here in Africa filled with ministry. On the way back, we popped-in on a pastor-friend of Emmanuel's. We had the opportunity to lay hands on him, anoint him with oil, and bless him and his ministry. It was a special, unexpected moment for that man of God. He was blessed.
Velvet and the kids are on there way to the school to join the students for Wednesday morning praise time and then help in the cafeteria. This school serves all of the children breakfast and lunch every day.
I will try to upload some pictures of recent activities later today.
