A basket of flowers, fruit and snacks was in our room when returned from the Bulrushes on our second day. I was still sick from a chest cold, jet lag and no sleep and was overwhelmed and filled with various emotions including guilt. We came to serve, and yet we were being blessed by Watoto. They were so quick to show appreciation for our time, money and service. We could learn from them! The days that the basket sat in our room it was a visual reminder to me of the traits God is trying to develop in each of us.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23
