Saturday morning Phiona and I joined with our friends, Jessalyn and George Lwanga to visit the children at the orphanage. I brought a special craft to do with them that my friend Laura at home helped me prepare. During Kira’s naptime Laura helped cut out cards, christmas trees, and stamp lines on cards so the children could make some home made Christmas cards!
And there was so much pride in in their work.
If I had been really smart, I could have the children make hundreds of cards all week long and then this could raise money for them. I will tuck that away as a fundraising opportunity in the future.
Herb and Ellen took us out for a lovely dinner at the Serena Hotel, which is like a palace in the center of rural Africa. What a strange contrast, yet, as Herb says, it is the epitome of the political scene in Africa.
