The finish of our work day at the Imara Home this afternoon was totally centered on having fun with the children. While Kristine was providing a presentation on cerebral palsy to the moms and the staff, the rest of the mission team and the kids did wild and crazy things with swings, tricycles, running games, catch-me-if-you-can, complete with laughing and screaming and full-scale family-style fun and games. Totally unplanned as it was, and probably frustrating to Sharon who had carefully planned a bubble-wrap art project, the Good Lord arranged a total Plan-B for all of us, creating some memories that will have legs.
About our planned activities today: the first science project started, computer training occurred, the inventory system is growing in quantity and quality, the water tower platform was completed, and Sharon offered an amazing devotion about God’s answers and scriptural references to thirteen of our common-everyday responses to life’s challenges. For example, when we say “I am not smart enough to deal with this,” God says, “I will give you wisdom.” 1 Corinthians 1:30 reveals, “He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.” Sharon has twelve more examples of daily doubt and frustrations which I expect she will gladly share.
