June 13, 2011 Day Six

I am wondering how I can even begin to talk about this day. I know I cannot do it justice with mere words or photos. We woke up early to take a trip (about 3 hours) to the aldea , San Miguel where David’s CFCA child lives. They have never met before and the entire community came out to greet us. At the entrance of the community they had constructed a gazebo made of palm leaves and flowers. We all walked into the community together with more and more people joining us along the way. When we arrived in the center of town there were many speeches and songs of welcome. We learned that David was the first sponsor to visit his sponsored child in the community. They were so happy to have us as visitors, we were all humbled by their welcome. We spent a lot of time with the community and we all enjoyed it very much!
We were able to stop at my brother and sister-in-laws sponsored child’s home. His name is Wilson and he loved all the things my sister-in-law sent for him!

After our visits in the communities we came back to the orphanage for Mass for the feast of San Antonio. It was a beautiful Mass with the younger children singing. After Mass there was a “reception” in the courtyard of the orphanage, this is where the girls distributed the decorated bags of the bread they made. The people from the community came to see the decorations and receive the bread. It was a very nice celebration. Please excuse any typos or strange sentences in this post, Karol has been “helping” me and it has taken me a long time to write what I’ve gotten done!

  1. This entry brought tears to my eyes. What a great experience. The pictures bring back so many memories and really make the blog come alive. Thank you!
    I’m sure that Karol has been very helpful with your entry. Are you sure you can’t sneak her home in your suitcase?

  2. I have been touched every day reading your blog. Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with those of us who couldn’t travel with you. Make room for Christina and me next summer! Hugs from San Antonio:)
