More Children’s clubs

Today we did a lot of children’s club! The first lot was in Eternity Church and they were really lively! I had to sing with them and then sang a song by myself. Some of them knew some English, and were able to respond to Dad when he talked to them all! The second and third one was in a small village in a little place with 2 rooms, and we did the same sort of stuff! They loved playing with the parachute and playing a ball game! The children are very welcoming and very nice to speak to them. I like the tradition of girls kissing each other on the cheek twice, starting on the right and the men hug each other. We are going to church tomorrow and meeting all the friends we have made, and Sam has made a good impression on the older guys?!
