Over his left shoulder you can see a kid with his thumb in his mouth. That's our youngest orphan: Calvin. These two are best buddies and dig in the dirt for hours!
A few weekends ago, I went to the East wing, where they live, and sat on the floor with the litttles ones. They were fascinated with my cell phone and my watch in a way that only 4-year-olds can be... They speak hardly any English, just like I still speak hardly any Swahili, but both of them crawled onto my lap and we visited for close to an hour.
To me, that's one of many things I love about sharing Christ with these little ones: simply sitting and visiting with them so they feel valued.
