Paint Party, Part 2

At lunchtime on Paint Party day last week, we walked back up to the orphanage also run by Christian Service International. This was a great orphanage- the kind that makes you proud. I first knew I loved this place when I walked in a bedroom and saw this- a little girl, reading to her (brown) Barbie.
Five girls in each room, each one with a sparkly painted letter on the door.
Bright and cheerful
What a wonderful place.
Loved this tapestry on the wall.
Lunchtime
After visiting the orphanage, I gathered up the kiddos and went back down the road to paint. A couple sweaty hours later, we had three painted houses! I love the sherbert color myself.
Mr. Heath from CSI went and got some of the family members who will be living in the houses. It was very neat for the kids to see exactly who their work will benefit.
 These are the children of one family who already moved in to the house we painted orange.
The whole Quisqueya team.

  1. Wow, what a beautiful orphanage! I LOVE the first picture of the girl reading to her brown barbie doll! That's just AWESOME!

    And what a wonderful service project! I know the students beamed after it was all done... and the families, too.

    Thanks again for sharing your experiences!

    Love y'all and praying for you, too!
