helping some children from the garbage dump.
The Grifton team
arrived in Saigon Saturday morning, 6/7. We loaded into a van and
traveled to Danang. This is the cheapest and best way to see the
breathtaking countryside of Vietnam, the land where the mountains
kiss the sea. We traveled 8 hr. and stayed the night in Nha Trang.
After leaving early the next morning, we arrived in Danang Sunday
evening (a 12 hr. drive). The first week was spent visiting the
children at the garbage dump, Families 1-5, the vocational school,
the Ruth House, Tomorrow Club, and individual homes.

Sunday, the Team ministered to children in 2 churches. In their free
time, we worked in trips to Hoi An, Marble Mtn., and the Water Park.
They found time to shop, buying more toys for the children and
souvenirs for family and friends back home. We celebrated Tony's
15th birthday, and they spent several days of quality time with some
of the street children in Families 2 & 4, as well as more time
with the other children. They didn't want to leave VN!
