CAR Review

We made it back to Ohio at about 8:30 p.m. on Friday, August 1st. It was a great and awesome trip. All of us are ready to go back.

We spent almost every day with orphans and spent time with over 500 in 8 different groups in Bangui. The people of CAR are very loving, creative and joyful, even in the poor conditions they live in, by our standards. We spent time playing games, a lot of soccer and basketball and other “motion” games requiring no equipment. The children make up games to enjoy and we loved playing with them. The children come up to you and just want to hold your hand and be near you. There greatest need is for sponsorship so that they can have food, clothing and maybe private school.

It was awesome being with the ICDI staff. We miss them and will continue to communicate with them.

Thanks for bearing with us and not being able to get e-mails to you. Internet access in CAR was very limited, even when electric power was available.
