On July 16th, Mark Zimmerman ran the Buckeye Trail 50k to raise money for a new truck. After a long search, we finally found it. This new truck helps us run errands around town, pick up kids from school, go to the market, and make it through some of the rough roads here in El Salvador. Thank you to Mark and everyone who contributed to Love. Hope. Go the Distance.
Once a month Gloria, our Social Worker, organizes a night of fellowship and fun for the kids. Our first night was Costume Night. We were highly impressed by all the creative and ingenious costumes, most of which were made with whatever we had laying around the house in our craft baskets and storage areas. Gloria acted as the evening’s MC, while Rachel, Justin and Amanda presided as the judging panel. We gave out prizes for each age group and also for the Tios and Tias.
We had a firefighter and Batman.
A hula girl.
Wednesday from The Addam’s Family.
A crazy clown.
Several Harry Potter characters.
Little Red Riding Hood.
And many more.
Our second night was Foreign Food Night. Each room was assigned a different place (China, Mexico, Italy, Spain, Africa) and prepared traditional food as well as a short presentation. Of course, there were more costumes as well.
