excursions

willian and wisman ready to race
thanks to some great people who help make it possible, we are able to take the boys on monthly excursion.  i've talked about these before in my blogs so i won't repeat everything about them here.

some great memories, learning opportunities, bonding moments, and just mind-blowing experiences have happened on these excursions!

all you have to consider is where these boys are from to imagine how crazy playing paintball or racing go-carts would be!


shoot... for jason and antony (two of our new boys this year) just getting on the escalator at the mall yesterday was a rush!

yesterday we took the 15 boys who had earned the last excursion to see The Jungle Book in 3D.  several of the boys had never been to a movie before!  they kept reaching out to try to feel the image on the screen, and taking off their glasses to try to figure out what in the world was going on...




we are so grateful to be a part of these boys lives.  much of what we do centers around teaching, discipline, parenting, and training.  so when we get the opportunity to get them out of the village to have some fun and experience new things it is always such a special time.
