One of my favorite times of the day was devotions in the morning, when we were all gathered around the breakfast table. We took turns being led each day by a different Wannabee. That was a focal point to help prepare us mentally for whatever the day would bring when we headed out to the orphanages.
There are so many things that could be said but just pack your bag and go with two great leaders and experience it for yourself. Your eyes will be opened and your heart filled.
