May 10 – Partying with the youngsters

Today we held a party for our basketball camp kids (although half the kids weren’t at the basketball camp, and many who were weren’t there!). It was GREAT! These are such great kids, and the Fathers House kids came down with us, plus Jack came and brought two other basketball players. We gave away lots and lots of great – and greatly needed – stuff: tee shirts, ground nut paste (like peanut butter), bread, washing bars, a kilo of sugar, friendship bracelets, candy, hugs… The meal provided by Nesco was fabulous, and we ended up serving 79 instead of our estimated 58, bringing our total for the week to 126 people fed a great, nutritious lunch (including meat, which they rarely get). It was kind of like the loaves and fishes – I told them to serve to whoever came, and somehow we had enough food for them all with a good amount left over!

It was easier to just put the pictures up for you – enjoy!
