There was a girl there about 11-12 named Danya who was just sweet. She tried on my hat which I had discovered was too small for me. I forgot about it though and walked away. I realized later that she still had it and they had told us that the village kids would take things so I figured it was long gone. About an hour later though, she found me and gave the hat back. I told her she could keep it.
There was a girl named Ziena who knew english very well so the other kids would look to her to translate. She was so funny.
|This is Ziena. She was embarrassed because Papa Don was bragging about how well she knew english.|
Another girl who really caught my heart was Maria. She doesn't live inside the compound but her older sister does. At first I was taken back by here because I gave her a bracelet and then she would go hide it and then look for another member giving out bracelets and get one from them as well. I think she ended up with 6-7 of them. She was really sweet though and kept touching me and singing to me. She didn't know any english but she sang "Jesus loves me, Jesus loves you" to me and danced. She had a beautiful smile!
|The one in blue is Maria. See all those bracelets on her wrist?|
