Flag of Bulgaria  , Varna,
Tuesday, August 23, 2011

We enjoyed another fine morning at the beach today but it was the afternoon that provided the best entertainment. We took all the children to the Cornett Ministries camp complex at Obrochiste, located only 10 minutes from our base here in Kranevo. Our hosts were Betty Cornett and her wonderful team of helpers.

The children enjoyed a fab afternoon of Christian teaching, crafts, singing and dancing, swimming and ice cream. The singing and dancing were probably the highlight of the visit and all the children were sad to leave after having such a wonderful- and I never thought that I would see teens dancing to the chicken song but I have the evidence; video to follow. Oh yes.

A huge thanks has to go to Betty and the team for their time and effort. It is so good to meet people with the same heart as us for the children and young people of Bulgaria. The work that the Cornett team do is amazing and an example of serious long term dedication to the cause of the vulnerable and exploited children of this country.

Tune back in todays' blog in a day or two for more pics and some embarrassing video...

It was truly our pleasure and blessing to have all of you here. The children were soooo well behaved and the teachers loved being with them. The whole staff complement your team on what you are doing for these children. Bravo to your work in Bulgaria. Glad to be a team working together to help prevent child abuse and trafficking.
