As many of you may already know, my mother passed away while I was with her in New Jersey. I am SO thankful to have had that special time with her, my sister, and my brother. I didn’t post anything during that difficult time and I’m sorry.
When I arrived back to Perú, I was greeted with shrieks of joy and lots of hugs and kisses from all of the girls – such a blessing! I’m very happy to report that the overall attitude of the girls in the Home is amazing! This is our current TF family pic:
One of our girls had an episode the other day which appeared to be epileptic in nature. She’s fine but it really frightened the girls who were with her. Scott was right there and he protected her from injuring herself. This is the first time anything like this has happened to her so please keep her in prayer. She’s such a sweetie. She recently won a competition by memorizing 41 verses!
One of our other little ones was taken to a specialist to investigate why she’s unable to concentrate. She still doesn’t know her letters, numbers, or colors and she’s 5/6 years old. Unfortunately, some negative affects from their past never go away.
On a happier note – We’ll be taking the girls to the beach in January or February which is summer here. Last year, a church in Florida provided money for Christmas gifts for each girl AND for the whole TF family to go to the beach! For many of the girls, it was their first time ever seeing the ocean. Needless to say, it was a huge blessing!
If you or your church would like to do something special for the girls, it takes a month or so for anything to get here, so October/November is the best time to send gifts if you want it to arrive for Christmas.
Thank you for all you do for these precious ones!
