Saturday we loaded up in the bus and headed back to the R&R; house where we painted several rooms with a paint “wash”. The staff at the home do this wash several times a year, so it was a great way to lend a hand. The best part of the day was that the kids were home from school, so we were able to spend more time playing with them and loving on them. What a great way to end our time in India.
After a wonderful Indian meal, prepared by Daisy, we headed back to get showers and had one last team meeting. Each person shared how this time made a lasting impression on their hearts.
As we drove to the airport, we had one more wild adventure in stop & go traffic–aaahhh–but we made it on time thanks to our fantastic driver Solomon. We arrived at the Chennai airport definitely tired, but with a belief that we had accomplished what we set out to do…to make a difference in the lives of orphans.
Join us sometime on an adventure that will change your life, as well as the lives of orphans in need! Check back for more from Streams of Mercy!
