End of trip

The team flew out today and made it home safely. It was sad to see them go. During their last few days here we spent some time shopping in a village. We also spent one whole day setting up a store of clothes, blankets, shoes, etc. The people in the village were then able to come into the store and "shop" for stuff for a VERY cheap price. By doing a store it allows the people to take ownership of the stuff they are getting. Plus they are able to pick the items they need most. At the end of the day we had raised nearly $300. The money was donated back to the church we did the store in and the local clinic in the village.

It was a great last couple of days.....full of seeing old friends and little brown kiddos that have stolen all of our hearts! Please continue to pray for the team as they return home and have to go back to doing day to day life. I know they were struggle with leaving today. BUT they were a HUGE blessing to so many people this past week and it was an honor to serve along side each of them.

I'll post more pictures and stories soon!
