June is Almost Over Already!

An update is long overdue since my last post was WAY back in January!          We added 2 new girls to the Torre Fuerte family in January – Estefany (16) and Noemí (13).

In February we celebrated birthdays for Leslie and Monica (our goddaughter) by going to a rock climbing wall. Luke and Monica had a great time and did quite well!  We added 3 more girls Luz Clarita (9), Flor (11), and Yolanda (11) to the family.

In March, Micah & Karla moved to a town four hours away from us where he is teaching English. It is the town where Karla grew up as a child. We also had a group visit Torre Fuerte Home for Girls from Texas. They built the skeletal structure for a computer lab for the older girls to learn more advanced computer skills, they painted, they built cabinets, they spent time with the girls doing crafts, teaching, and playing.  2 new girls arrived, sisters Brittany (13) and Andrie (10).

June brought us a new opportunity… All three of us were asked to help translate for a medical ministry – a group of doctors and medical students from Alabama.   We’ve added 2 more girls – Milagros (3) and Zalét (10).

Many blessings to you all!
