Every Saturday, usually when the boys have soccer games, Carrie, Heather and I have begun gathering a group of girls to have “girl time.” We decided that the girls in the community would probably enjoy doing some fun things like the boys do and it would be a great opportunity for us to build better relationships with them. The first couple of weeks we decided to paint, make bracelets, and paint fingernails, among all the other “girly” things we could think of.
Some weeks are more successful than others, but we always manage to wrangle a group of girls with the help of Nodi.
We also decided that it was time that the girls got a turn to go to the river, no boys allowed, except for Curtis and Steve. The girls had a great time, for many it was their first time, it was awesome to see their eyes light up as we drove along the river up the mountain.
We have been priveledged to get to know many of the young girls in this community and have been blessed by all of their unique personalities. Pray that a ministry with the girls can continue even after we leave and long into the future.
