  1. Maddie, I can so see you getting those kids to be silly! and lovin`every moment of it! Thanks for sharing! and I can`t believe that it has been a month already...before you know it, you will be back home! Love you lots! Gillian

  2. Ah! I feel like you are realiving what I did last year and then telling me my own thoughts again... so thank you for the reminder! Also, I have been to most of the places in your pictures of meritsberg so that is sweet!! You should try Nando's sometime, it's pretty good! Also, take advantage of mangos! The kids are so so cute and I am so proud of the way that you care so deeply about them just like jesus does. keep letting it penetrate your heart because when God penetrates our hearts, his heart penetrates others to. I'm feeling it, even half way accross the wold, so I can imagine that those kids are feeling it even more then me! Love you! Kaitlin
