Cord Group

First Cord Group time. 
Penninah, Lisa, Esseza, Viola and Sharon 

Cord Groups are based on Ecclesiastes 4:12 "Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."

The focus of these Cord groups is to build relationships with our groups through fun activities, talking, sports
and bible study.  We desire that these groups would be a safe place for the kids to learn to trust, share emotional hurts, dreams and aspirations.

We had a fun first time together. We made chocolate chip cookies and they painted their nails and we talked. I also taught them a game my sisters and I would play called EyeSpy.  I have the feeling that they are going to be teaching it to the other girls in the houses. 

 Each Cord Group has one missionary and one Ugandan.  I am super excited that my partner with these girls is Penninah. She is the manager of GSF's house moms and has a social work degree. She has an amazing ability to take every conversation and use it for a life lesson.  Pray with us that we can be Godly role models for them and that we would bond with them and love them well.
