From Meredith Thurman, team member:

Today has been absolutely amazing! David led our morning devotion to start off our day by reminding us the importance of contentment in ALL situations. God is the supplier of all of our needs, and He is the ultimate source of contentment. This was a great reminder for me as we went out today.

During our time in the village, the Hygiene Team had the opportunity to walk through the village and look at some of the houses. I was absolutely blown away by their lifestyle. The things they have to do on a day to day basis to survive and provide for their family seem major and extreme to me, but it is absolutely normal to them and what they are use to.

Despite how much of a challenge these men, women, and children face daily, their joy and contentment is evident. Their joy and smiles have blessed me so much, and I will carry these memories with me for the rest of my life!"
