Africa Team Report #1

Mike McCracken writes from Bangui, Africa:

We just finished settling in at the Guest House in Bangui. We are all feeling a little jet lagged, but are doing well. Our schedule will be full and busy.

A couple of "LOL" (Love Out Loud) moments so far. First, Brenda in the terminal at Philadelphia. There was a young girl with her dad. She was extremely upset and crying. Brenda noticed she had blocks in a carry on and asked permission to play blocks. Brenda and the girl got down on the floor of the gate and played and had conversation. The whole gate was blessed. Second, in the airport in Paris, Joan and Brenda noticed a mother frantic with several young children trying to get to her gate for departure. Joan and Brenda quickly helped her gather her carry ons and children and rushed to the gate, where she was the last to board.

I have to go. Team is ready to visit the Orphan Welcome Center.
