Our next adventure was the children! We walked to this area that they use as their community church. We talked for awhile as the kids started arriving. After they all arrived, we hung out with the kids and did things such as painting nails, face painting, playing catch, and dancing. After awhile, we had the kids sit down and we gathered together. We re-enacted a skit of Noah's Arc. We all had our own part to play and the kids and adults enjoyed it. We sang songs as they sang back to us. We also taught them a new song and dance called "Baby Shark". Then they sang "Jesus Loves Me" in Creole. After we taught them "Baby Shark", they taught us this game called "Todo Buquee" where we all stand in a circle and clapped and sang. The game was super fun because we got to dance in the circle one by one. After everyone calmed down a bit, we handed out snacks and drinks to the children. After we handed out things we had to say goodbye. We gave them one last hug and went on our way. We all got back in the tap tap and it was about an hour and a half drive back, but about half way we stopped at a grocery store and grabbed some things like cookies, drinks, and candy. Then we drove all the way back home and we were super tired. Most of us changed into our swimsuits and went to the pool which is about a five minute walk. We hung there till dark then traveled home. Once we got home, we ate dinner and had group time where we talked about our plan for tomorrow and prayed all as one. We are all relaxing now and are ready for a fun day at the beach tomorrow.
