8 days. 2 universities from Texas. 40 students. Kusi.
It was spring break a couple weeks ago for two Texas universities, and instead of heading home or the beach, 40 students from the RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) programs at Southern Methodist University and Texas Tech decided to spend a week helping at our Girasoles home for boys in Kusi.
They moved tons of rocks for the floor of the addition to the school and planted 1500 eucalyptus trees.
We visited the on-site school and the students performed a couple typical carnaval dances.
And we spent time playing with the Girasoles boys – like the other boys, Socimo, can entertain himself with anything.
Since it was a large group and I was there with them by myself, very few photos were taken during the 8 days… It was a busy week, but a great time with the Girasoles boys and getting to know the students and leaders.
The next group arrives this Sunday morning and we head north to the jungle – to Puerto Alegria and Iquitos!
