I have been sharing with you some of the amazing stories of HOPE and restoration coming from Watoto, but yesterday we were taken to see some of the “before” situations. We went with our team and a social worker from Watoto to visit some very rural villages where some of the children have come from. To see the conditions they are in is so heartbreaking. Yes, they smile and dance and sing and laugh… but there is still so much need. It was like stepping into another world to visit these children. When we arrived, we first had to meet with their local council and gain permission. Then once approved, we were able to wander around and interact with the children freely. I adore kids – it doesn’t matter we can’t speak a word in the same language! I could have stayed there all day!
