5 months

5 months!!! So amazed by God's goodness in these 5 months! Been living in one of the houses for the past month working as tia and it has been an amazing month. It is a LOT of work. And lots of hard work but so rewarding. Lots of special moments like putting 3 year old Javier down to sleep and reminding him just how much Jesus loves him and seeing his sweet little smile. Or giggling with the girls late into the nights.

The summer program is going well. There has been loooots of rain making it hard to play outside and do fun activities. But we had a 6 hour walk, basket ball tournament, pajama party and have more fun things planned. Only a few more weeks left of vacation!

Seeing God working a lot in my heart. Be praying for the girls here as there is lots of gossip and mean words going around and several are really struggling. Continually praying for patience and grace to love and love and love no matter what. It isn't always easy.

Continue to pray that more kids would come since there's lots more free space since the 10 kids who graduated are all leaving for college.

Lots of love from Bolivia! Thanks for all your love and support and prayers! You are all a huge blessing to me! God bless!
