One of my favorite days of the week is Care Worker appreciation day. The care workers are the leaders in the village they walk the paths daily, they know exactly who is sick, which children are orphaned, who the most vulnerable are and what the needs are. They don't get paid to care for their community, there are no rewards, they just have hearts of gold and really care about the village of Susu.
We get to treat them one day. It's a special day and there is lots of food, and a fun game of bingo. They come dressed in there very best and we all have a great time. We build closer relationships with them. We also sing and dance praising God for the work he has done throughout the week.
I love seeing the smiles on their face and how they light up when they win a game of bingo :)
At the end of the day it was hard to say goodbye. I talked with pastor Sanday and told him to not forget me that if I don't return next year I will be back in Susu some day. I hope I can start supporting Susu more and continue to build relationships. As far as what next year holds only God knows for sure.
