December has been an exciting and busy month as we’ve had many donors and supporters generously provide us with Christmas parties, activities and gifts.
A few weeks ago, Alma and Romero, a Salvadoran couple who started supporting us over a year ago, threw us a party at a local McDonalds. This exciting celebration included lunch, games, piñatas, dancing elves, a beautiful Christmas cake, and a Santa who handed out presents to every child. After the party, the older girls received a special treat when Alma took them shopping at the mall. And, as an added bonus, a Cinemark employee who attended this party gave us free movie passes for a free movie the following week!
About a week later, the employees at TACA airlines sponsored a pizza party at our Home. Before the party, they had asked each of our kids to write a letter to Santa asking for a specific Christmas gift. While this seemed a lot of work at the time (you’d understand if you’ve ever tried to get over twenty kids to complete a project), it was worth it because Santa also attended this party and gave each of the kids exactly what they asked for in their letters. It was unbelievable, in a very good way.
We have felt God’s love, peace and joy through our sponsors’ overwhelming generosity. We praise God for His incredible blessings and are grateful for our local sponsors and everyone who provides for us during the Christmas season and throughout the year. May God bless you this Christmas and in the coming year. ¡Feliz Navidad y Próspero Año Nuevo!
