Jireh Orphanage

Monday afternoon we went to Jireh - a brand new orphanage.  So far there are only 6 children, all between 5 and 7 years old.    There will eventually be up to 25.   We met the children  as they came running down the stairs and threw their arms around us.  

Tomorrow is their first day of kindergarten so we took them all to the mall to the Bata shoe store to get school shoes for them.  
They were all so patient in waiting for their turn.  

And they were so proud of their new shoes.
