As I write, I am sitting on the second floor balcony of the main villa, looking out at the mountains as the sun sets. The orange glow of the fading sun is beautiful and I am reminded that our time here is also "fading." That makes me sad because the children (and adults) have truly gotten a piece of my heart. The children inspire me with their stories of overcoming such tragic young lives and the hope that burns so brightly inside of them because of the love Betsy and her staff give to each child as a member of the Jericho family. The love of Jesus is all around us. Today we all worked on different projects -- building cabinets, more painting, making jewelry to sell, making small repairs around the villa, tiling the gazebo roof...and of course, still fighting the Internet to build a new website for Jericho (it will happen...eventually and internet willing). But mostly we captured moments that will live in our hearts after we return home, and hold us until we return again. God is good. -Kyle
