These are the bright and shining faces I met in April of 2004. Douglas is in the back row, on the far right.
Now look at him! I am so proud. I miss these kiddos so much it hurts.
From the newsletter:
P7 [seventh grade] student Douglas happily reported that he was able to use what he learned in his auto mechanics exploratory (after school club) while on his school holiday. Douglas' brother-in-law had a flat tire on his car and Douglas offered to change it. The man was hesitant, seeing that this was just a young boy, but Douglas insisted he could help. "My brother-in-law was so surprised because there are big people who can’t do that," said Douglas, "and it was a skill I learned in just two days.”That would have been useful on tour, especially the day we parked our charter bus at a wilderness camp in Minnesota, and one of the back wheels broke through an old (empty) septic tank. THAT was an adventure.
Love you Dougi. Miss you, choir 25.
