An Orphanage in the Jungle

 Last week I had the opportunity to join with Oakwood Baptist on a mission trip to an orphanage near the jungle.  It was so neat to see all God had done in the past year!  Last year when we went, the kids were crammed in a small house with no grass and no room to play.  Now they have wide open spaces and lots more room to spread out.  It was such an encouragement to be with such an awesome group for the week.  We had many laughs and praise God for his protection throughout the trip.  Below are some pics of what we did.
