I had a wonderful morning in Clarkston at the Apartments
helping with a "Block Party" for the kids. Smokerise
Baptist was there. They are good to come every month
to play and work with the children. The boys played a
vigorous game of Soccer outside while the girls just
played on the playground. The "international village" was
awake and busy this morning. I saw veiled women hanging
out the wash. I saw a Bhutanese Grandpa getting a hair-
cut from his son on the patio. I saw one couple sitting
on their patio placing tiles into a mosaic pattern on
a board. I'm not sure what they were making.

After the kids played we went back into the mission
and made lunches for the children. One little boy who was 3
started crying, 'I want my Momma." I told him I would take
him home so we walked to the other end of the complex where
I dropped him off with his parents who were N. African Muslims.
3 of the children from Congo, siblings, and I wiped the tables
and sweep up after the kids went home.

When I left I went by Santi and Purna's apartment.
They are Bhutanese. They lived for 17 years in a refugee
camp in Nepal. I had a pack of new little girl baby shirts
that I wanted to give them for their baby daughter.
They weren't home by I was greeted with a great big hug
by their sweet son and Santi's parent's. It was a real
special day in the village!!
