Trenches, Soccer and Kids!
After working all day in the sun, we headed back to the Posada and cleaned up to to St. Theresa of the Child Jesus Orphanage run by the Sister's of the Sacred Heart. We enjoyed pizza with the girls and met the sisters. The girls were very welcoming and enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed theirs.
Before the pizza a serious game of soccer broke out and it was quite a battle.
The teen girls enjoyed showing their skills against the us, the visiting team.
We headed in for the pizza and the girls offered a 'rap' style grace and the pizza was served.
A language barrier came down easily because hand games , smiles and lots of laughs too the place of spoken words. As we said our good-byes the girls sang for us. One song that touched us was John Lennon's Imagine; leaving us with a message that world can be a place filled peace and love.
