Wildfire! Day 2 (Monday)
Our second day at Wildfire began with breakfast and over 125 people singing a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday to You” to one of our own – Annabelle – who celebrated her 13th birthday today. She was quite surprised but (while turning several shades of red) graciously accepted the congratulations of her peers. She’ll never forget her 13th birthday now!
After breakfast, we broke into groups to begin our assigned projects for the day. Becky and a few of our young ladies worked at the Damiano mission house, which provides child care services. They spent a few hours carefully cleaning toys and chairs and helping the staff organize materials and projects before settling down with the children for some one-on-one time. I haven’t heard all their stories yet, but they came back smiling. Then again, who doesn’t smile after spending time with a bunch of cute little kids!
