role reversal

By | 2:12 PM 5 comments

On our first visit to the mission with our kids in tow, we met Kiki, who was finishing up making a homemade guitar.

Of course, after seeing this, our Ezra was completely obsessed curious with this idea for a new project and kept asking question after question for how he could make his own...

The next day we were back at the mission and Kiki was waiting with his charming dimplish grin with a surprise for Ezra: He had made Ezra his own guitar. 

During the course of that very same first week we spent a lot of nights in the "living room" of the mission as our house didn't have any power. The mission kids asked us every night why we were sleeping there and not at our house. 

Upon hearing our reason, one of the boys, Lengee, offered his fan to me,"You take fan from my room for you!" 

I am here to pour into them and they have already poured into me.

Praying for you guys and thinking of you often! If you send out e-mail updates with prayer requests please include me: rebeccaannebyrd@gmail.com. Otherwise I will just pray for things as the Spirit leads and as things come up on your blog. So glad the mission kids are loving on you too! :)
