First visit to the Itoman Orphanage


May 5th is Children's Day in Japan, so a group of us went down to the Itoman Orphanage. Itoman is a city farthest south of the Island of Okinawa. In the w2 Biblestudy, there is a girl who attends who frequently volunteers at this orphanage. We asked her if we could come and help and she was excited. So, to make a long story short, we finally were able to serve there. We were blessed, the kids were allot of fun, energetic and happy. Joanna, Yumi, Takako, and Genevieve were able to serve the newborns, and the toddlers. The rest of us, clowned around with the kids. God gave us some vision in the future. We can come back again, serve the little ones, and do little Bible skits for the kids. Please pray for us though, because this is like a Buddist orphanage, so we believe that God will give us His favor, with the leaders.
