Day 1 & 2

After a long but safe day of travel, we arrived at the orphanage late last night. It was a joy to be greeted with hugs and smiles from the girls in the orphanage. We were then served a delicious meal of “baliadas” and fresh fruit the nuns had prepared for us. We were all tired but excited for the activities of the coming week.

After mass in the chapel at the orphanage this morning, we met the men and women of the elderly home. Seeing their smiles as we played games, danced and served lunch, melted our hearts. They give so much gratitude. Sor Miriam gave us a tour and showed us several improvements that St. Michaels has helped them to accomplish. What a fun morning.

It is damp and cold today so indoor activities are on the agenda. This afternoon,the girls are writing pen pal letters and making friendship bracelets. It truly is a blessing to be with the girls because that are so joyful and gracious, lots of laughter everywhere.

Tonight, we will have dinner with the nuns and then visit with some of the girls who have graduated from the program. I am sure we will go to bed again tired but happy and feeling loved.
