Valla Hondito - Day 1

Our trip follows Russell and the gang from Oklahoma. Just want to say a big thank you for all your hard work and for your compassionate hearts. The new awning on the church looks incredible and the new tables are a much needed addition. We are going to paint them this week to protect them from the weather as well as build some more benches for the children.

Our day was so wonderful getting to participate in the for program and play with children. They really enjoyed the crafts that Jill brought. It was a huge hit. We are truly blessed to be able to be a part of these children's lives and to be a small part in Gods glorious plan. What a privilege to serve in this capacity.  We spent alot of time with the little boy named Cristian that Kendra wrote about so eloquently. He was recognized today in front of the group as being sponsored and we presented him with his Bible. While he is not old enough to read just yet he held on to his Bible the entire day. He seemed to liven up as the day progressed, especially after he cleaned his plate from lunch. You could tell that he is not getting the food or nutrition needed to sustain him throughout the day.

We will keep you posted on our trip and Cristian's progress. We spoke to his grandmother today and obtained permission to take him to see a doctor tomorrow so we will know more on his status tomorrow. All the children are so great but he speaks to your heart without having to say a word.

Until tomorrow......good night.
