Me and Angel, Summer 2008

Monday was a national holiday here in the Philippines. I’m not sure what the holiday actually was, but I welcomed a day off from work. Leah and I decided to visit the children’s home where I worked last summer. It was a great opportunity to visit New Faith Family Children’s Home again. I saw so many familar faces, and I was able to meet some of the newcomers to the home.

We spent most of the visit in the  nursery where I was able to spend time with several of the kids I helped take care of last summer.

  1. Hey, Hope it is so good to see you doing God’s work and having fun too but if you are doing God’s work it is usually fun. Or at least spiritually fulfilling. Will be praying for you.

  2. Hope, I can see the joy in your eyes. That little girl would enjoy life in Mississippi. You can send her back with your Mom. Prayin for you and Leah.
