Making memories… October 5, 2011

Posted by Hope 2 Tanzania in Other.

The children at the New Life school are in the midst of their national exams. We are talking serious business. There are armed guards watching over them to make sure they don’t cheat. The kids have been so stressed that there have been many sick due to nerves. So, as Americans who love a good party, last night we decided to surprise them (all 180 of them) with ice cream and The Lion King 1 1/2. For most, they had never had ice cream or seen a movie…especially on the big screen. We took a generator, the white side of a large tarp, 50 liters of ice cream, 200 cups, 200 spoons and made a memory that they will never forget. Between laughter, screams of delight, sugar buzzes and wonderful fellowship, it turned out to be a memory that we Tanzanian’s/wuzungu’s (white people) will never forget.

God has blessed us so abundantly. We have been humbled, we have cried, we have laughed, we have been tried, we have been stretched, we have been changed.

Thank you Jesus…
