We have now made it to Chayah, meet the kids and seen the land. It should be a great week.
We met the Chayah kids on Saturday. There are 14 girls ranging from 5 to 21 and 5 boys. They all live in one house started by one local lady Janet. They sang us a welcome song and we stayed around for an hour or so talking with them and touring the existing facility.
We went to the site for a couple minutes just to get a glimpse of it. We will do more site visits later in the week. The land has a lot of potential. We are excited to see what can be done to house these kids, add a school and clinic.
In the evening back at the hotel we went for a swim, had dinner then had a sharing time. We collapsed into bed again.
There is a lot of work to do this week and a lot of coordination to get people to and from the site.
So far we are all still feeling well, even after our chicken on a stick beside the road for lunch yesterday.
