A couple days ago we finally got a chance to visit Talita. In just a month she has changed so much! Not only is she a few pounds heavier and looks healthy, but there is a wonderful joy that was not there before!
When we got to the girls home she came running to see us. She has written us about 10 notes which she handed me in a pile, instructing me to read only later. It included a note to her mom saying she is praying that God would help her give up drinking and that she wanted her family restored another for her grandfather asking him to please stop smoking because it was bad for the body God gave him, and a third for Jonas saying she loved and missed him...and another 5 were for Mario and I!
In one of the notes she wrote me asking if she could call me mom. It had hearts all over and was signed ``your daughter``. I almost cried when I read it!
What joy to see the change in her. This smile says it all!
At the girls house they are learning to make jewelry and these
When Mario asked her if she had made new friends, she corrected him saying, they are my sisters! We can´t wait to visit Talita again!
Last week we had what I think are the last rains of the season...
Last friday one of our missionaries (Darlan) shared a special presentation about drugs with the kids.
Usually it is hard to get them to pay attention for more than half and hour, but the presentation was 2 hours long and the kids paid attention the whole time! It was great!
Last Saturday was little Samuel´s first birthday.
And Saturday night my dad came to do an introductory course on Scatology (end of times). We had great times of learning and discussion about this very neglected, yet super important theme!
Come quickly Lord Jesus!
