Five More!

Sunday was a busy day.  The children that were supposed to arrive on Saturday actually arrived on Sunday afternoon.  At the same time that they were arriving, we were preparing for a local church to come in and set up for service and the new volunteer doctors drove out to see the property.  

It was quite overwhelming but so exciting to see so many things we have been hoping for come together.  The volunteer psychologist is also a pastor.  His church came out to perform dramas and choreographed dances for the children.  The Brazilian missionary who was heading up this youth drama team gave her testimony during the service.  Because the new children arrived only moments before the service was to begin, we invited their parents to stay for the service.  I didn't realize at that time that the testimony of the missionary was almost the exact life story of the mother who was leaving her five eldest children in our care.  I thank the Lord that this mother was able to hear that the Lord can redeem our lives, no matter how far away from His presence we may feel.  Because many of the members of the ministering church were able to come, along with the new children's parents, we had over 60 people in our multi-purpose building!

Thank you, Lord for being in control of situations even when we feel that things are not going the way that we think they should.  

Here are our newest additions to House 3:

Andres, Kevin, Mili, Lisa, and Lujan (they are even more precious than they look!)

Oh, they are so cute. I'm glad they are in House #3 now and a part of the Hogar Ganar family...

These children are beautiful. It's awesome the way God works out life, some days, isn't it. It's all part of His big picture even when it's not our "ideal" conditions.
