Cali’s thoughts on Wednesday

As I sit here outside watching the boys play soccer I’m just reflecting on the day and this awesome week I have had.
This morning we went to the school and ran the VBS again. It is so fun starting to get to know these kids and starting to remember their names. The girls are all so cute. And the boys are all just studs, so cute. I have had an amazing time hanging out with and just loving on these kids this week.
After we finished VBS, we headed to Wahoo Bay! It is this awesome resort on the beach north of Port-au-Prince. It was absolutely beautiful! When we got there I headed straight to the ocean. It was gorgeous teal water. It was unbelievable! After awhile I went into the pool. I went over and grabbed Vinny and we swam together for awhile. It was amazing. I didn’t want to let him go. Again a moment I won’t forget. I told him I needed to get all my hugs in before we leave and he just goes okay! Haha he is just the cutest thing ever, and I couldn’t be more sad that we have to leave him here Friday. I have loved getting to know him, and getting to hug him whenever I want. Well, he doesn’t always like it but I don’t care 🙂 I have some awesome pictures, but they won’t load so I will have to post them when we get home.
I have a few prayer requests as we prepare to leave early Friday morning. We have to say goodbye to the boys tomorrow night. I am very nervous and anxious about having to say goodbye and having to leave them here. It is going to be really hard for me and Willy to leave Vinny here. I am asking if you would please pray that we would feel peace tomorrow night, and know that we will get to see him again and hopefully soon. Thanks! Again- sorry for the typos, writing on the phone!
