Quote of the Day:  “There are only two ways to live your life.  One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as though everything is a miracle.” -  Albert Einstein

Ladies from the Baptist churches came to our mission today to thank Alice and to say good-bye to her since she leaves Monday.  They spent all morning thanking her and saying good-bye with lots of laughter and lots of tears.  Alice is off this afternoon with Pastor Motomoto to see another orphanage in the area.  John met with the pastor of the Methodist church to work out a plan for using the new uniforms for the soccer team.  The pastor will have kids from Sunday School tomorrow try on the uniforms so John can take pictures.  When we came here, we thought we might make some changes, but we never thought the majority of them would come from visitors and our son, John.  As Alice said, "If you weren't here, I wouldn't be here", so I guess we serve the Lord just by being here.  We can do that and be happy about it.  It is a true delight to see the changes taking place around us and the excitement that accompanies them.  We are truly blessed.
