A week in!


So our first week is now complete!! We had a busy first week being trained into our new roles! My role is working in the Foster Home, helping the staff there with all the different volunteers who will be coming to work with the kids. I will also have time to be with the kids and help with a few different projects that the foster home do! I will be there for 11 weeks so will have plenty of time to learn and get to know the kids and really help.

On Friday there was a ceremony for children's day (which is on Sunday) and to say thank you to one of the big sponsors of baby supplies. It was held in the backyard of the foster home and the kids all performed a song with actions/motions and we had some nice food too! I brought lots of Ireland t-shirts for the kids and they all wore them! Check out the facebook page to see pics!

This morning we held a father and son event for the families in the village! We had all sorts of games to play, and a craft (making a car that moves using a balloon) for them to do together! It was the first time to do this here and it went well!

Monday will be Dragon Boat Festival so we have the day off! We are going on a big adventure into the city (by public transport!) One of the Chinese staff is taking us so we are all excited about that!

Thanks for thinking of us, please continue to keep us in your prys as we get into our roles as summer staff!
