Horatio the tank

Horatio bringing joy.
Horatio's valiant sacrifice.

 Day 8- Sunday July 7, 2013

Hello Wolfpack followers! Meet our newest yet the shortest lived member of the Wolfpack, Horatio the Elephant. Although Horatio may have had a rugged look on the outside, he had a beautiful heart, which was filled with the sweetness of Laffy Taffy on the inside and was able to bring joy and laughter to the orphans of Banh-nana. 

Today we spent our last day with the orphans of Banha-nana and it truly was a bittersweet moment for the whole team. Within the span of just one week, our team was able to make a positive impact on the lives of the orphans. Although we may have not been able to effectively evangelize to the orphans through words, as a majority of the orphans did not speak a single word of English, we were able to evangelize through our actions. From actions such as playing games and making balloon animals to even the simple action of just holding their hands and being by their side. In this short trip to the orphanage, God has truly shown me what it means to love unconditionally. Just as how God is able to love us despite our past and our sins, we were able to fully love the orphans without knowing their past.
