Lap spaceRich Stigall
By Trip Manager Stephanie Mutert
Many times, it is common to wish you had more lap space when hanging out with the Pastor’s kids. The giggles and young energy that manifests in wiggles are abundant when visitors are hanging out.
This visitor to Latremblay 15 made herself more on the level of these little fellas when she decided to sit on the ground, creating yet more lap space and immediately had more than one friend in her lap. Many times at the villages, we hear remarks on how much the kids crave being held, holding a hand, or receiving hugs. This is common within orphan culture where there is one adult responsible for several kids, so one-on-one attention is limited.
The pastors are always quick to remind us how grateful they are for visits to their kids, and a large part of that is the attention that is given to the kids in their care. Pastor Claude is one of our pastor partners who always enthusiastically greets his visitors with a thankfulness that surpasses anything a visitor could imagine. Whether it is a free lap, loose hand, or many hugs, or even an older girl making new hair creations for visitors…each touch is valued at Latremblay.
