I chaperoned boys for the first time at a host home last night and it was quite enjoyable. As I was tucking the boys in I asked them about their favorite part of the day. My teacher's heart was blessed when they enthusiastically replied, "school!" I'd like to share with you a few lines from Gilbert's bedtime prayer as well. It blessed my heart greatly. "Lord, thank you for our host family. We have nothing to give them, but we pray you bless them Lord Jesus. Thank you for this soft bed and thank you that Auntie Laura and Auntie Angela had a good day in Chicago and came back safe. Thank you Lord Jesus that we are still alive. Amen"
A few quotes from our team for your enjoyment:
"What did you girls want to be when you grow up? Did one of you say teacher?" -host auntie
"No, that's Gilbert Big. But only when he's on stage. When he's not on stage he wants to be a gorilla when he grows up!" -Lillian
"Do you have corn in Canada?" -A host auntie to Uncle Steve
"That is my enemy" -Gilbert said, pointing to his carrots
"I will save these two photos of me-I want to remember my host families, but I like looking at myself best." -Racheal
There are many more to come I am sure! I'm off to dinner....
