Yesterday Sara and I had a second meeting with one NGO that is based here, and we came away from it feeling better than we had about any other meeting thus far. It was exciting! The possibilities are opening up for us, and we are excited to see forward movement in the near future. There are some things we and they have to look into, but please be asking that all the pieces will fall into place exactly as they should be.
One thing we had to do for this NGO to look into our proposal further was write up a complete and very detailed plan, including job descriptions, methods of operation and (dun dun dun) a complete projected budget, all for the first two years of HS being open. We worked for four straight hours on that today... We were so focused we didn't even leave the room or think about eating til 8:30. We aren't done yet... But we have a good chunk done. Keep that in your thoughts.
On another note, we spent our morning filming for our new and upcoming video. We can't wait to show you... I love that Sara and I BOTH get to be in it. Awesome.
Tomorrow we go to the orphanage for our second and final time. We are bringing some things the kids asked us for--namely nail polish and chips--more face paint, and some activities. There will be more kids than last time since the school age kids will not be in school. We are excited to spend time with them. Also, we hope to connect with the director again.
Thanks for all your encouragements! We couldn't appreciate you more.
