I've been so behind in blog posts, but I have a good reason. Jeremy and I haven't stopped moving in weeks. It's been hectic, chaotic, but also amazing and inspiring because we've seen some spectacular things along the way. Before the year 2008 ends, I want to share the adventures we've had in the last couple of weeks.
SANTA JULIA CHILDREN'S SHELTER in GUANAJUATO--The little girls here have been through so much pain in their lives, yet they exude love all around them. They all have powerful stories of suffering and heartache, but at this shelter they are picking up the pieces of their lives--and some aren't even teenagers yet. The girls embraced us with open arms and took us in as if they'd known us all their lives. It was uplifting to see such strong young girls rise from their struggles.
These girls, like all children, were instantly drawn to Jeremy. Here he shows them video of themselves.
This is what happens when dozens of girls live together...shoes, shoes, shoes!!
Cool fruits on the grounds of Santa Julia.
The Virgen watches over the Santa Julia girls.
The girls are blessed to have four nuns who watch over them.
