Early Mornings & Teaching with the Sisters

Today was a good day overall as we are all still getting adjusted to the time change. This morning we walked to church, and saw a lot of people awake at 5:30 in the morning. It still amazes me how many people go to Mass daily here in Nigeria. After Mass we went to school and helped teach the children for most of the day. The schools here are much different from ours back home. Here the children are placed in the same classes, but are at very different learning levels. We were very grateful to be able to help the Sisters. They had a small ceremony to open the new hostel for the young mothers at Anawim this afternoon. Later, we took some time to travel around Gwagwalada and visit a local seminary. "We are grateful for all of your prayers, and love you all very much. Glory be to God."
