Day 3 at Warsaw Day Camp
Dzien dobry! Good day! Last night was awesome. We went on the city search and saw many things. Paula and I were in a group with Isabella and Paulina who are 2 Polish girls that are in an English Club here with Ben. There were 3 groups of people that split up and we were all given a list of 6 things/places to find in Warsaw. We also had to answer questions about each place. It was fun. It was very interesting talking with the 2 Polish girls. I asked what Polish people think of Americans and they said that most of them are fascinated by us. Paulina talked about the “American Dream” and about our TV shows. She said that I had very dark skin and they said that I looked like I was from Holland and that was strange to me. Anyway, we went to Pizza Hut last night with them and we had a good time. Today at camp I was in charge of recreation. It was fun today as we played with water balloons. Although at the end one of the boys helping thought it would be funny to soak me with a bucket of water. Ugh. So my shoes are wet and my clothes. I sat my shoes outside to dry in the sun and changed clothes. I went to take a nap during the afternoon and was woken up by thunder and loud rain. I jumped up and realized my shoes were outside!! I ran downstairs to grab them and they were not there. One of the girls told me that the boys had hidden them. So I am trying to find them and Matilda said they put them on the window sills outside. Luckily, they were not wet! So their devious plan actually helped me out. J Tonight we invited all the children and their families back to celebrate Our Independence Day with us. We grilled out and then played games. The parents played with their children as well. After that we had a “Barn Dance”. They loved it!! We all enjoyed it. It was a huge success. I am so thankful for this opportunity and love seeing what God is doing in this community. One of the parents thanked me for coming and sharing with them. This has really been a great experience. I need to go to sleep now. It is almost 10:30 pm here but it just feels like 7. I just can’t get used to it. Only 2 more days of Camp left. Praying that it will continue to be successful and God will continue to work through us. Dobranoc! Good night!
