We spent the morning learning about the ministry and the influence the home is having, not just Nairobi but around the world as they are helping families adopt these beautiful children. Then we were able to head outside for playtime in the yard. As you can see, others on our team aren't like me. They love the little ones...

Despite my nerves, it was a good day and I made some new friends who I got to play ball with all afternoon.
It reminded me of how I react when I see God move. God is constantly working all around us. We see it over and over again and yet I seem so surprised when he does. I shouldn't be surprised when he does, but I am. I'm excited about it...until I see someone watching. Then I have the crazy idea that I should hide my excitement and awe for fear of what others may think. It makes me wonder how much I'm missing because I'm more afraid of other people's responses than I am willing to just bask in God's goodness.
It was a good challenge for day 2, to keep my eyes open for God moving during our trip and celebrate each moment with great joy.
