The Hokey Pokey:Tuesday, June 21, 2016
School again was great. Before class I was asking Natalia if they had P.E. Class today. At first she said no but I knew they did. So I tried again. This time her answer was irrelevant to my question. So third times a charm right? This time Natalia just said yes and smiled. Finally I asked her if she knew what I was talking about. She smiled really big and said nope. I started laughing so hard I had to send her on to class. One day, maybe one day we will fully understand one another.
At the end of class I taught the kids the Hokey Pokey. It was interesting. They had so much fun that we had to do it three times. Needless to say, I was just really winded and really sweaty.
This evening we had a Women’s Bible Study. After it was over one of the women, Petra, came over to me and started hugging me. And she hugged me for a really long time. The whole time she was saying things to Serena in Spanish. After Petra let go Serena told me that she said every time she saw me she wanted to hug me so this time she was just going to do it. I thought it was really nice of her and it made me feel welcome and accepted by the people here.
