Day 8 | Rachel Tonkin

The best part of my day today was driving the 11 miles to the camp that took 2 hours. During the drive I saw many things that amazed and shocked me. Communities made of just tents, colorful buildings, and even a man pushing a wheelbarrow carrying what seemed to be half of a cow (raw may I add!). I’ve not even been here for a whole day and I have already been shown how blessed I am, even as a child. In one community, I saw a young child playing with a grocery bag tied to a string. It was blowing in the wind. He seemed so happy and content with just that small “toy” he had created. I am already amazed by how happy these people are with only a small amount of things they have compared to us. I’m sure this will continue all throughout the trip, because it is true… We are extremely blessed.

  1. Hi Rachel! So happy you are there safely! I can't imagine an 11 mile drive taking 2 hours! We even take roads for granted. We definitely are blessed and I pray God uses YOU to bless so many this week. Thank you for being the hands and feet of Christ. We love you!
