Some of the most important things to the children on the current tour is schooling and attaining invaluable skills. Every week the children have a chance to do their school work with the help of their uncles and aunties. Much of the work is done on the bus during long drives and the children get to do exercises and tests. Some of the subjects done on the road are Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, English, Reading and writing.
One highlight is the improvement in their English speaking. Some of the statements they make get us laughing –like “I don’t know how the annoyed comes” to mean I don’t know how I get angry or sulky.
In addition to school work, the children get to attain invaluable skills like self generated initiative, learning to be grateful and appreciative, being helpful and setting examples for others to follow. It is always wonderful to see them develop in their character. It’s never easy but they get to help us develop patience as we help them become better leaders. They also are learning how to make good choices since they know that every choice has its consequences.
Spirituality is not left aside; the children get a chance to have devotions to nourish their spiritual lives. This helps them keep in shape and develop into the kind of leaders God would love to use to influence the world for the better.
