Day 3 update

We had a very early start to our day. We met in the hotel lobby at 6:00am, took a walk down the street to grab some Vietnamese coffee, load up in the vans and head to ABC Bakery for breakfast. 

Once we arrived at the orphanage, we began to set up for a one day VBS. It was VBS Cambodia style! 100 of bikes were parked inside the walls of the orphanage as several hundred children arrived. 

The children were treated to games, songs, a meal and gifts. We attempted to do a relay race and water balloon games and it may have been the most chaotic thing I have ever been a part of. Language and culture were definitely a barrier today. 

The kids were full of laughter and smiles as we had an opportunity to show them the love of Jesus Christ.

We came back to the city and headed to the Central Market for some shopping. We returned early to the hotel for rest and showers. Tonight we will eat a buffet dinner. 

Tomorrow will be an early and long day as we head into the mountains to visit several villages. 

The adventures of team Towers continues!
