We have visited this place twice before. But it was always later in the day when the younger children come. This time, they asked us to come early enough to meet their older group. These people are age 18 and over. They have the mental age of an 8 or 10 year old. They were very pleased to perform for us.
This young man sang a solo for us.
They have been practicing with their "instruments". They are soda bottles with rocks and sand. Their music teacher has taught them good rhythm.
Then, we opened the box with the new music instruments. It only took us about a year to figure out how to get these ordered! We're so glad we finally figured it out!
They so enjoyed getting the new instruments and using them. And we enjoyed it too!
Some of them had memorized poetry to recite to us.
Some of the crafts they've been working on.
Our friend, Nastassia is from Stepnogorsk. We are happy she could go with us.
These very dedicated teachers bless the children's lives.
