La Esperanza Picnic, VBS, and our first baptism!

As time goes on, we are more and more blessed with this ministry. As each new child has come and integrated into the house, we have seen them go from frightened and wary to being an integral part of the laughing pack of kids. We are blessed for the support of our church family, who give time and money to take care of these little ones, and take them on outings and provide them with special memories. We are blessed with the staff that carries out the day to day work of feeding and helping with homework and all the normal daily stuff, with joy and commitment. We are blessed that we find favor with the government, and they are seeking our help to open another home. We are blessed by each of these kids who trust us and are thankful for what we can do for them, physically and spiritually. We are blessed by the support and prayers of those of you who help us with this ministry from far away. Mostly we are blessed that our Lord has allowed this opportunity to serve in His Kingdom, and get to know these precious little ones one on one.
