Kids Club Week Two

Hi everybody-

Sunday went really well. I am soo thankful. Eight kids showed up. Seven of them were from Gorge's house. One was the little boy from last week. We had a ton of fun together and I felt really up-beat about it. They are all planning on coming back next Sunday.

The highlight of it was that there was one restavek girl that was allowed to come. This is what I was originally hoping for. Her name is Leme and she is not going to school because she is too scared. She never got to go, then when she had a chance she was unsure of herself and cried. I was shocked when her boss (if that's what you want to call him) came and asked if I would be willing to do a basic school thing for her like two nights a week, just teaching her to write her name and count. I was soooo excited and will have more info about it soon. I want to try to connect with this these forgotten kids.

Thanks for all your prayers! ~paige~
