Saturday morning most of the Nampula youth group piled over to the MAF hanger to clean cars inside and out and change oil. Why? Well, it all started with Thomas :)
Thomas had been reading "Do Hard Things" (a great book by the way), and decided he wanted to do something "hard". So he asked the youth group what they thought of doing a car wash and changing oil to raise money from to give to an orphanage here in town. We all thought it was a grand idea and were ready to do it whenever the day came.
Which brings us to Saturday morning when we all came to the MAF hanger. The day had come and we were all ready to work :)
The MAF hanger. Thomas' dad is an MAF pilot.
Annie and Esther. We had all brought treats so that while people were waiting for their cars they could snack :)
How many men and boys does it take to change one car's oil? ;) Just kidding, Dad and Mr. LePoidevin were explaining how to change oil.
Ohh it was so cool! Damarise, Esther and I went out onto the tarmac while an LAM plane was taking off and we were waving to the plane and the pilot waved back :) We were so happy :) haha. Then when we were done cleaning all the cars everyone went onto the tarmac to wave to people getting off an LAM plane :)
When we finished at the airport Kent, Damarise, Andrew, Gracie, Sarah, Ian and I headed over to the Zwart's place to wash their car.
They had some beautiful flowers!
After a looong, but definitely fun day, we headed back home... with a bit of a sunburn and great memories :)
