Day 4-Prayers, Oatmeal, Good Talks and the Huruma Nursery!

Friday, November 13th

We woke up to sunshine and praise songs this morning. The sounds of children singing echoed through the guest house. Mama lead chapel this morning. Every few minutes of speaking, she would suddenly start singing a song and all of the children would join in. She also sent off the transition students and encouraged them to take what they have learned at Huruma and keep living a God honoring life. After chapel, mama Dolores made delicious oatmeal for breakfast while Brittany and Mariah read the Jesus Calling devotional for the day. We all walked down to the dining area and the students watched a video about abstinence, STD's and the repercussions of pre-martial sex. Meanwhile, some of us went into town with mama to get more bathing buckets from the Ngong Market and pick up a few last minute items for the student's start up kits. When we got back from the market and the video was complete and boys and girls split up for some Q&A time. We were able to share personal stories and give answers to their questions. It was another time of bonding with our wonderful transition students. We spent the next hour or so portioning out the bulk food we bought for each student and filling their start up kit crates. After organizing everything, we boiled and shelled 82 eggs for breakfast tomorrow morning. It was yet another productive day. We, along with the transition students, are so excited about move in day tomorrow! We are praying it goes smoothly and that the rain holds off until we finish!
