Altar & Children at the School
In the background you can see the altar covered with baskets of fruit that the children had brought for their holiday. They are collecting their baskets and shared some fruit with us.
As we boarded our bus to leave, someone suggested that we take up a love offering for the school. We collected more than 2 million rupiah (about $200 in U.S. dollars). When the money was given to the teacher, she just burst into tears. This was a lot of money for them.
We were very lucky to be passing by on this special holiday at the school.
