More from Monday


What an incredible day! Our morning started our with about 40 children from the A.S.K. (All Street Kids) ministry...wow, I may have a hard time just getting the words on the screen, it is tough typing thru tears. The Belmont team played, hugged, fed, and befriended these children, mostly from broken homes. Most of them are turned out on the street each day to fend for themselves, picking up bottles and begging. They manage to survive with so very little. The clothing that we passed out didn't always fit the child, but the smiles fit perfectly!

The afternoon was much warmer. A tired team engaged about 150 children in the same park that we visited yesterday. One on our team noted last night in our meeting that we didn't realize the impact that we had until it was time to leave and the children of the park did not want to see us get on the bus.

Betty mentioned that this group has pulled together. The have done that...and have shown tremendous personal growth in just a few days.

Happy birthday to John (wait to you see the video!)
