By blessing others…we were blessed!

This afternoon we visited Francisco and Pilar, our adopted grandparents. They have both been feeling ill (at 88 & 89 years old) and they said they were praying that we would visit them soon. Our group had the opportunity to pray with them. They always bless us much more than we could ever bless them. Their spirit and love for their eternal life is awe-inspiring to witness.

We then got to visit the kids we sponsored at the Joe Hartman School. Every child that was present got paired up with the American sponsoring them (or a stand in, representing the American sponsoring them). Joy overflowed at kilometer 6 for the 90+ minutes we spent with these amazing children.

Elza Phanord & her daughter, Jessica were presented a check for $15,000 by our team. Mimi Janus, the primary leader in finding American sponsors presented the check.
