We are in need of volunteers to host activities in July, August, September and October. Please let us know if you have a talent you would like to share.
We got to practice our artistic skills with our April 18th activity! We had a group of 6 girls at Casa de Milagros who enjoyed a morning of painting canvas tote bags. They stamped, stenciled, brushed and added bling to their large totes.
One thing we have learned is that (for them) MORE IS BETTER! They love a mixture of bright colors, lots of flowers, hearts & crosses, and as much bling as possible. It was fun to watch them diligently work on their projects in quiet concentration. And, they were so proud of their creations.
They enjoyed a break to snack on homemade blueberry muffins. And, we thank Kelly & Katherine Hoog for providing babysitting services for a very active toddler boy and a darling little baby girl.
It is mornings like these when we are reminded of all of the blessings that the Lord has bestowed upon us. It often makes our lives seem so easy compared to these girls that are often in desperate situations hundreds of miles from family and friends. We are there to show them that they are not anonymous and they are not forgotten. For they have us Chicks to encourage them and cheer them on.
