Thursday – Game Day

It was our final day to meet our goal and it began early. The weather was nice and sunny and the crew was ready for success. With close to half the fencing up we were focused on completing the rest of the fencing and the soccer goals. We all worked feverishly and as noon approached, the sun was beating down and taking a toll on many of the workers. We broke for lunch at Burger King and refueled. A total team effort got the CISNA Soccer Field completed at about 7:30 as dark settled on the orphanage. The kids were excited and began to gather at the court. That’s when the true meaning of our work, and God’s plan, surfaced. The joy in the kids faces and the excitement we all saw was powerful. It was a moving moment. Regardless of each of these kids trials and tribulations or the difficulties that brought them to CISNA, they all felt like a million bucks at that time. That’s what all our work was about!!
