The inspirational morning devotions by team members energized and focused everyone to serve. It was very needed. The children's church was overflowing. We were thankful when a local family offered their front porch as a place to teach the children. It was large enough to accommodate many children, and it provided shade from the hot sun.
This team had an ear cleaning station. It's not a job for everyone. But it was needed, and the girls who worked it said that it was very rewarding.
It was a good week with many salvations. The school director, principal and local policeman were all saved during the week! The policeman came back everyday and night to check on us. He asked that his face not be posted on the internet.
