When repeating the title of this entry out loud... "Not gunna Lie.... We Loved that Fish Fry!" Sarah (10yrs, Liberia), quietly studying nearby, answered quickly and excitedly "YES!"
We'd like to begin with a BIG Thankyou to the community of Fairdale Baptist in Hemphill, Texas... And especially to the beautiful Miss Rosemary for making it all happen.
It's been 5 long, hard, months that we've been on the road now, so it can be a bit difficult to find things the kids have never done! Well... hard for anyone who doesn't live in Hemphill!
Fairdale Baptist, and Rosemary were so kind as to put on a huge fish fry for the whole team. The children were beyond ecstatic to ride boats for the first time, eat fish for only the second time while here in the states (it was the first for many...), And most families even took the kids to go fishing for the first time!
This quiet town in the middle of nowhere made our experience and time there so worth while. Thank you just doesnt show how greatful we really are.
After all of the excitement, and stuffing our tummys with delicious fresh fish, caught earlier in the day, the kids wanted to show our hosts what they could do. So william took his seat and beat his drum (or... Wooden lunch table) to the beat of a few songs as the rest danced and sang a capella, concluding our impromptu concert with the jam "thank you so much!"
The day was fantastic, and we will never forget the endless love and mouth watering meals served to us from the most kindhearted people in Texas!
