I had the privilege of visiting Batticaloa once again. This time it was to help out with missions team I work with from Church. We have been helping widows and kids who have been affected by the war now for a little more than two years. It has been a blessing working with the team.
I went up there last Saturday to help with the the Christmas Program we are organizing for the kids there.
Batticaloa took a different shape this time. It had been raining really heavily and it had made the lagoon overflow. The atmosphere was filled with silence. It was very different from the Batticaloa I visited before.
We were on our way to a School in Vavuna Theevu which is towards the A5 from the Batticaloa town.
This man who was transporting grass was having a hard time getting across to the town. The lagoon was making waves and they were sweeping across the road. Looked beautiful, but was not that great for the people who took the road.
See how the road is covered with water?
These kids has come to the School to play. They were having a ball.
The friendly one, love the little fella!
I was always fascinated by the guys who carried firewood. Especially cause they carry an insane amount of firewood on those small bicycles.
Look at this guy :O Just amazing.
The smiles we were able to bring in to these people's lives give this awesome feeling of happiness and fullness. It just can not be explained. Once you put your hands in to it, you won't feel like taking em out :) Looking forward to do more work in the years to come. (This picture was taken by Kalu Kella)
On a different note, I have been neglecting this blog now for a while. Finally, Darling made me make a stand and start running it again. I'll try my best to post as often as I can. I apologize for not commenting on any of your posts recently.
Everything is better than awesome for me. When you find the best thing in the world it's a little hard not feel awesome and proud :P *runs around* heeeee B-) You just keep overflowing, and you refuse to stop. How do I keep up? ;)
Hope you enjoyed the post.
