Saturday

Wheaton Academy, Wade Center, Working

Friday was another busy but good day. We had our last day of class at Wheaton Academy. The theme for the day was games, so you'll see pictures of our kids teaching some traditional games to the Wheatonites. We also spent a lot of time exchanging cards and gifts and taking pictures. The students really connected well during the two weeks there. In the afternoon, we went to the Wade Center on the Campus of Wheaton College where we saw displays about seven well-known authors. In the evening, our students worked with the mentally handicapped ministry at the church. It was a new experience for them. They helped with dinner, singing, crafts and games. Due to certain restrictions, I can't post any pictures of those activities. But I can post these:
