Ice Cream Cones
Today's picture was taken in 1917, and it shows children working in an ice cream cone making company. I am not sure how the device works that you see, but you can see it is making ice cream cones.
Had a great day out at Mattaw yesterday, meeting some of the new children. It is amazing to me how resilient children can be, and how quickly they can be restored to being happy children. These two children were rescued out of unspeakable horror about a month ago, and now look at the brilliant smiles they have. The smiles are not poses for the camera, but are a reflection of a joyous heart. The little boy on the right sat in my lap all day wanting to be tickled. He has the funniest little laugh. That is all he wanted all day was to be tickled. I won't share there storied here, but will say that to see the smiles on their faces, and to know what is in their past, I can truly say that God and the love of Christ are definitely at work in East Africa.
