We typically take this opportunity to share with you what has been happening out at the Village. However, this month I want to share with you a very important facet of the functioning of all of the homes we have. We have 12 amazing women who sacrifice so much to love and serve our kids on a daily basis. These twelve women cook, clean, help with homework, discipline and truly do love and care for our kids. Each of them make sacrifices to serve the ministry, and we are eternally grateful for all they do. If it was not for them, we just would be in a very difficult place. Like all children, our kids get frustrated with their parents. Trust me, my girls here at the house are constantly frustrated with me. However, our kids love the women who care for them. Our older boys, the ones who live in Tulian as well as our older boys living in Puerto Cortes, recently showed their deep love for their ‘mom’ Loli. She used to care for our older boys, and now she cares for the younger group of older boys. They demonstrated their love for her this month on her birthday. They shared gifts and a cake and she was surprised and delighted. After we sang and she blew out her candles, she tearfully said she never could have imagined that she would get the wonderful surprise of being able to spend her birthday with all her boys. We are blessed indeed to have such wonderful women caring for our kids and it is a beautiful thing to watch them be blessed in return. Please take time today in prayer to lift up these beautiful women serving our precious children.
