As I've written before, Layne and Gavin are best friends. They spend almost every minute of the day together and laugh, laugh, laugh together. It is pure joy, just listening to them!
Gavin told me he could carry Layne, just like they would carry little siblings in Benchi. I honestly didn't believe him, but the truth is in the pictures. He is one smart, strong boy. He squats down, Layne climbs on, he stands up and away they go. I've just had to give them warnings on not bashing her head into anything!!
They both went to AWANA at the church, last Sunday, for the first time and LOVED IT!! They've been memorizing Scripture and listening to the stories all week.
We received our sponsor child through Children's Hopechest today. We are excited to help provide him with food (everyday), education and love. Hopefully, when we venture back to Addis, we'll be able to meet him and let him know that we pray for him regularly, BY NAME. He is definitely not forgotten.
