Kids. Swim. Sleep. Repeat.


This past weekend was relaxing, busy, tiring, and hectic mixed into 5 days. The main things I remember doing were watching the Helping Hands staff’s children, swimming A LOT, and feeling so tired that whenever we had free time, I would sleep. This wasn’t the normal routine of the weekend, though. We also experienced Corinth! We got to hike up the Acrocorinth. We didn’t get to hike up all the way to the top, because we arrived at 2:30, and they closed at 3:00. So, we only got through the three gates that were surrounding the structures. We also went to see the Corinth Cannal. Come to find out that everyone on our team (besides Ken and I) would bungee-jump off of the bridge. Everyone else is all for it, but I’d rather look at the scenery – not be a part of it.

It was a lot of fun watching kids, seeing the sights, and relaxing for a little while.

P.S. I did not miss the hill in front of our apartment AT ALL!

P.P.S. It was Tiffany’s birthday on the 29th, and the whole staff of Helping Hands and the JG Greece team surprised her with a cake and sang “Happy Birthday” to her at dinner!

  1. Elizabeth, praying that your energy will pick up after caring for the children and all that walking! I know you are having the experience of a lifetime and giving all of yourself to it! Blessings!

  2. You are doing great!!! Keep up the work for the Lord and He will richly bless you in more ways than one. The Helping Hands have really benefited from your team and I know that you have benefited from being in Greece. Love you lots. 🙂
