Reflections on Serving - Ben

Reflections on our time in Mexico by Ben, age 9:

I think the times I connected most with the kids were during Perler Beads and bingo and other crafts. Those times were special cause the kids were so active and having so much fun with the things that we have at home but aren't really that fun at home. The things we don't appreciate as much. It's special to the kids because they had nothing until the orphanage came into their life, and they still don't have much, so everything is appreciated.

I was really surprised at how much they shared. They have a lot less than us, but they still shared generously. Like when they got some candy from bingo, they always would share it. I need to work on that more.
