WORK AND PLAY! (Post 13)
Where do I begin after my last post? There have been so much that has happened in the past three days.
Saturday: Amazing! We got to hang out with the kids in the afternoon before the church service. It was quite amazing seeing how much energy these kids have and how awesome they are at the same time. They were amazing kids playing games, especially soccer, and making me silly by pulling nutmegs on me (kicking the ball between my legs). Then came dinner, the best night that has happened on this trip. All of the children came and met at the boy’s house. When I was playing futsal (a smaller version of soccer), I felt a presence by God, telling me I was doing well with these kids. He told me to enjoy what I was doing. I did as he asked and had fun
with the kids. They were the best players I have ever played with and had amazing shots on goal. I couldn’t stop every goal when I was in goal. It was a long, hard day and later having a sore body that night, but it was well worth it.
Sunday: Crazy! I didn’t know what to do when the day came. There were so many games and so many fun activities. There was handball, baseball, Frisbee, and more games as well. All the games had fun and creativity to them. Of course, I enjoyed any game that involved me being a goalkeeper. I loved handball as I played as the goalkeeper on my team. It was an amazing game and was able to do more than I expected. As lunch time came around, I completely stepped outside my comfort zone. When I walked to the Posa (lake or swimming pool), I walked and saw Madeleine and William all wet hearing that they swam in the Posa. The next thing I knew, I jumped in the pool and joined all my friends in the Posa.

match with Haiti (the boys actually live in
New Orleans, but family is here)
