Today I woke up feeling ill. I think I picked up some sort of Gambella bug. We got ready, ate another of Alem's delicious breakfasts, and then headed to the community center at Lebu. Lebu is a poor community very close to Hannah's Hope, but it took us awhile to get there because of the very muddy, extremely bumpy streets.
Shana handed out some of the friendship bracelets that she made and sold for her Prayer Buddy Project, so we got to meet a lot of the kids who were hanging around the community center today. The very first boy we met was the one whose mother asked us if we would adopt him because she could no longer take care of him and his brother. Heartbreaking!!!
We headed back to Hannah's Hope, and then Chris, Shana, Wass and I drove to the Africa Orphanage down the street. We gave bracelets and beanie babies to the children there, and it was so nice to meet all of them!
