Watoto Friends

These are pictures Alex sent me from his iPhone. He took the boys to see Alvin and the Chipmunks and then to Austin's Park and Pizza, where they played video games, and rode go-carts, and had a blast. Then David met them all for dinner at Benihana which apparently the boys LOVED. Riley had such a good time getting to know Paul and Vincent, and Uncle Nik and they learned a lot about Uganda, how they have no TV there, but they do have running water (which we do not give a second thought to here in the US). The boys really opened up, and cried when it was time to leave, Alex was a blubbering mess too, they really got to him! He said as soon as the boys got on their bus with the rest of the choir, they started telling them about Benihana and how they caught food in their mouths, the fire volcano, and all the video games they played. I really hope this teaches Riley and Tristan to be much more thankful for what they do have, and to never take things for granted. I know for sure, this was one weekend I don't think any of these boys will forget any time soon.
