About a half dozen crew members went to orphanage for boys. It was my first time. But others in the group have been going weekly. It was dark and the lighting was poor. The boys came to our vehicle as soon as we pulled in. They are fun loving and enjoy playing games.
I could barely see the Frisbee and other flying objects. Several ball games were going on at the same time using the same small area near a building with one light. We play all kinds of games including relay, American football, and naturally soccer.
There is only one woman on staff. The rest are men. The age range of the boys is 6 to 18.

Most of the photos were taken by crew members and placed on the share drive. A thank you to them for sharing. Mercy Ministry photos were taken by the group leader. Individually we are not permitted to take photos during these activities. Our focus is on interacting with the children and adults.
