This week - visited an orphanage run by King's Kids/Sheryl Black (from Greenock, Scotland!). This is a photo of Ruthie, who was given up as an infant.
"dorm boys" and my assistant, Nathanial
After-English-Class social, with the dorm boys (Left to Right - Jaya, Yanto, Pieter, Pieter's friend from Bali, The Mister, and Michael Jackson) at our fave local resto, LegoHouse.
out for morning coffee/adventures with the mister....
And Fundraising event to raise money to bring one of the dorm boys (Yanto) to Canada for 6 weeks of soccer adventure in the summer of 2014 (more details to follow).
AND, the biggest news this week is - we got confirmation that scholarships at Charis National Academy
will be provided for four of the female soccer players that I met while I was in Papua a few weeks ago! We are so excited about this and it exceeds my (Heidi) expectations! More info to follow in a later blog.
We feel like we are finally settling into life here, and enjoying ourselves, even amidst the difficult adjustments.
