Luke 24:13-32
This is Jesus heartburn(I have to credit Dallas Willard for this term!)...31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, "Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?"

The Ship!

On Thursday, Ashley and I and 3 of the TRS staff took 15 children to visit the Logos Hope, which is a large ship that makes stops in many countries and allows people to visit. The pictures of our day are in chronological order below. We had so much fun…as you can see from the pictures it was quite a day! The children were so cold on the ship because they had the AC on! Ashley and I thought it was wonderful!! The boat has a huge bookstore with many Christian books for sale and the children had fun looking at all the kids books. I had a hard time not buying a bunch of books for myself…I kept reminding myself that I sold all my books for a reason, these children, and replacing my library during my first month in Freetown is not a good idea! The other fun part was the bathrooms! The children were amazed at the flushing toilets, running water in the sinks AND hand dryers. Some were scared of the hand dryers but others wanted to wash their hands over and over again just to use it!
