Today we had one of our later days (in terms of when we left the house and had breakfast), we had breakfast at 8:00 instead of (7:15-7:45) and then left for the TGJ (The Greatest Journey) graduation! The Greatest Journey is a program to teach people about Christianity, so when we goth there, we got to watch some of the kids speak in Spanish about what they learned! I really enjoyed that when it was time to graduate the kids, we were able to shake their hand and give them a bible! (or in the case of the kids who could not read yet, a booklet with more pictures) After the graduation, the kids had a lunch break so we got to spend a bit of time with them before we left.
Then we had lunch and went to a Christian family center where we were going to get to hand out the shoeboxes! We played with the kids who came here, and tried to teach some of them how to make an origami paper crane. After playing, someone came to tell them about Jesus, and then we gave out a small booklet about the bible, and the shoeboxes. Later we handed out some snacks to the kids and then the kids were allowed to leave or stay and continue playing until their parents came to pick them up. While we were doing this, we handed out some of the bracelets and keychains that were given to us to give to the kids!
Tomorrow will be one of our early days (with breakfast at around 6:30-6:50) so I hope we will not be too tired in the morning!
