The two of us can't communicate with words, but I have a feeling we are going to be really great friends by the end of this week. The children of the church were very happy to see us. Our crew got to hug and kiss a lot of babies and kiddos...I already know we aren't going to want to leave them when we are done here! We were honored to ...
