As I write this post its 2AM here at HOM, we will be leaving in about 7 hours and I probably won't get to make another official post till I am home. I promise I will give a fuller update on Day 15, but in short on day 15 our team went out to the town centre, there was the talent night and also an amazing campfire time with all the kids & staff... Then we had to say good byes to some of the kids and friends here... A moment we all dreaded... But God willing we will be back to see them again.
As I look at the camp fires burning in the middle with the sparks drifting up to the starry night I am reminded that our lives are like these sparks, short lived, and quickly flickered away. Some of us may never see some of these children again, but like the bright stars over top, we set our hopes on something more constant, a final destination that won't flicker away; A place where we will never say good bye.
