Last Day in Meru

Today, while half the group was working on auditing some money, the rest of us worked on writing thank you cards to all the teachers of the school.

We met up later and made our way to the school to deliver the cards, as well as curriculum books and small mattresses for the play group. We also had some desks and chairs for the teachers commissioned, as well as a locking cabinet.

After that, we went to see a young girl who was born with AIDS.  She was doing well until college, where a stroke left her confined to a bed for over a year.  Today, she was walking without any assistance and was making a recovery.  Her aunt takes care of her, as both of her parents are gone.  She was in good spirits and seemed happy to see us.  The gave us some delicious passion fruit and the aunt asked me to stay with them forever.

We came home for our goodbye dinner.  We took turns making small speeches, saying prayers for our journey home, and eating way too many french fries.

Short blog post today, as I stayed up late making a slideshow to show people when we get back home.

Not enough internet to put up any pictures right now, unfortunately.

Until next time,

Neil
