One Side of Love
Every couple of years the Gerbrandt and Graves families visit La Paz and like to do a bit of volunteering. What a better way to meet humble Mexican families and angelic children then to bring gifts to them.
We also distributed clothing to sent to us by Justice, and we gave away colourful knitted hats and scarves by our resident knitter, Sylvia Sperling. There are no words to express our gratitude for the caring that visitors have for those who have so little. On behalf of the families in Vista Hermosa, thank you. More photos here.
Another Side of Love
Emily, who visits La Paz every few years and holds our charity deep in her heart, accompanied me to the community to hand out some new and used clothing and hair scrunchies her mother made. Curiously, one of the translations for scrunchie in Spanish is donut. Who would have thought?
The Face of Angels
Another big turnout for our monthly children’s event of races, musical chairs, Loteria (Mexican bingo) and the exciting game, Pie Face. The kids are totally fascinated with Pie Face, waiting for their moment of glory (unscathed) or agony (splatted in the face
with whipped cream).
Before the kids left, we handed out small bags of candies and popcorn and, thanks to donors of Tailhunter International Sportsfishing, a young boy won an awesome, huggable, stuffed penguin providing years of squeezable love. More photos here.
