The following took place between 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm

I promised the kids I would take them to my Facebook page and when we went to the computer lab, the internet was not working. As a matter of fact they have had a problem with it for some Mark and I made a commitment to make sure that it would be fixed shortly!

It was then time to start the worship time with the kids. They used the amp and mics and the pastor jumped in using his bass. It was a difficult time as they knew and both Mark and I knew that we were leaving. They sang, asked us to share before we left and then they shared with us as well. I cant speak for Mark, but I believe that we shared the same feeling of genuine love and compassion for these kids. When the music was over, we were surrounded and the tears began to flow on both sides. It was very difficult to drive away with them all standing under the roof waving goodbye. But it is not over....

We found out that they need guitar strings and Bibles with the Old and New Testaments...and plastic guess what we are planning to do tomorrow? Tomorrow morning we have a meeting with the man who is the head of the orphanage at the hotel that we are in. At around 10:30 we are back to that music/sports store and we are going to pick up some strings...maybe a volleyball or two and then we are going to get Bibles for all the kids and then we are going to buy a bunch of plastic chairs! Our hope is that we will have the time to deliver the Bibles personally...even if we are there for only a few minutes. We have to be at the airport at 1:30 as our flight leaves at 3 to Jakarta.
