Merry Christmas from the girl's dorm!!
I love this, our 2008 Christmas photo. I used iphoto effects to make it look cool:)
The little girls from the youngest two rooms, styling their new custom made and designed skirts, new t-shirts, and new sandals (thank you, donors of the money for shoes/sandals for all the kids!).
Carmina is pleased with her gifts!
The girls each received a back pack for school, filled with an art kit and a few other fun items.
Christmas lunch: chicken, french fries, pasta salad, and potato salad served with rice.
Me and the tias (dorm mothers) who I work with!
I love these ladies.
L to R: Tia Inez, Tia Sidalia, Tia Safira, me, Mana Fina, and Tia Sonya!
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me,
because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion--
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."
