This is Emily...Today was a chance to give gifts to the orphans and other children who come to the orphanage to eat. Our students at school had made each child a card using their spanish as well as collected gifts for the kids. It was so fun to give them out! Each child got one or two pairs of underwear, socks, a dress or shorts, and a toy of
their choice. Their faces were very excited about picking out a toy for themselves! These two little cuties have a dad, but no mother, and they are very poor. We gave them toothpaste, pencils, and extra underwear since they do not have enough at home. We feel very blessed to be used by God to bless these kids!
A group of older women at a local Cincy church made all the dresses and shorts for the kids by hand! It was fun to help the girls pick out one that they liked best. This little girl on the right is named Andrea. She made me so happy today because she loved her little plastic bag filled with goodies so much. She wouldn´t even dare to open to little toy or anything, she just wanted to hold her bag with her everywhere. I know these children have not ever had much that is theirs, so this was so sweet to me!
