Albella: Update 5

Day five in Albella, was my favourite day yet! We started the day with a lie in, waking up at around half six in the morning. After another fantastic breakfast, we had an amazing time praying with each other and for one another where there was a very tangible sense of God's presence.

We then went along to the main event of the day, a presentation talent show to say thank you to us for coming to visit. As we entered the room we received a standing ovation from the boys and we were presented with scarves to honour us. Many of the boys sang songs, danced traditional and freestyle dances as well as acting out skits for us. The highlight of the event however was the boys acting out a drama that recreated the journey of the boys coming to Albella from their past lives and how they transition into men. We were all profoundly moved.

After spending time with the boys in the afternoon, we gathered for a church service led by the team. We sang all the songs we had learnt this week together and even learnt a new one. We then blessed the boys and shared with them how they had each touched us this week. Finally Chris shared a message encouraging the boys to continue loving each other and thanking them for teaching us so much about how to live like Jesus.
