Trip to the orphanage
We had an opportunity to visit and deliver supplies to an orphanage that is run by a member of the church. As we approached the place the children saw and ran to meet us with their arms opened for hugs. This is new school that was built for the children and also the neighborhood children the director can then charge the neighborhood children alittle bit for school and this give her means to help the orphanage. But as we went into the school there is no desks or chairs so I don't know how that's going to work. We played games hokey pokey, do as I'm doing, head,shoulders knees and toes, and president cook even got the children to play Simon Says. The conditions of this orphanage was bare minimal as you can see from the pictures I didn't think I would see worst than Romania but I did. Picture of the shower and latrine are shown and then their beds with mosquito nets. The senior missionaries from our mission made the bunk beds before this the children were sleeping on the hard cement floor. There are 23 children in this orphanage.
