We have good news!! We finally received some mail!!! Everyone was so excited when a stack of mail was delivered to us here at Mendies Haven. We are supposed to get another delivery on Monday, our last day here.
It’s hard to believe that our time here is so short. The children here are already telling us how much they will miss us when we go. It is hard to think of leaving these precious, beautiful children. We have all become so fond of them. We are due to leave Tuesday a.m. and bus to the India border. On Wed., we will board a train to Agra to see the Taj Mahal and then on Thursday, bus to Delhi for some sightseeing and then to the airport to catch a midnight flight to Chicago. We will be back in the states in less than a week!!
We have almost completed our projects here. The children and staff are very excited to have a covered patio so they can wash dishes and clothes and not get wet in the rain. The patio will also enable them to cook outside when propane is not available. We are also proud of the partial wall we built in front of the boy’s bathrooms. The team has worked hard and they work very well together! They are a joy! A special thank you to you parents for letting us borrow your children this summer. They have all grown so much!
