Immediately when we walked into the classroom and again after getting off the bus on our first day in the batey, we were swarmed by children of all ages wanting to give us hugs, to be held, and to play and worship with us. The language barriers didn’t matter; the economic differences didn’t matter; these little ones were just like any other child anywhere else in the world.
