Homeless Kids

INDONESIA | Sunday, 1 August 2010 | Views [1131] | Comments [5]

At 8:30 this morning we saw 10 young homeless kids asleep on the footpath in the city of Medan.  We bought chicken satay for all of them & water & milk drinks & some other food.  When we came to give it to them, they were all just waking up.  They were so shocked & thankful.  It was like Christmas for them.  It shouldn't have been that way.  It was only food and drink.  Dave & I were so choked up.  We went back later & gave them some of our clothing & bedding.  It was the favourite part of my holiday. 

Now we are at the airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  Almost home...
