Say Cheese!

Something is missing in kindergarten – teeth! First, there was Yafreydi. (Katie wrote about the lost tooth experience here.) In January, Scarlette and Yorjeni joined the ranks of the toothless. When I came back from furlough, I noticed Beba’s big gap! The gummy grins are tiny signs that our kiddos are outwardly growing and changing. So thankful to be a part of their lives, missing teeth and all!

Diego

Diego is a small batey consisting of just a few families. Scarlette and Chiquito, two of the children who live here, attend our pre-school. Part of our team recently spent some time with the Diego kids – we taught a Bible lesson, sang some songs, and played pelota in the dirt path. It was refreshing and enjoyable to get some focused moments with the sweet people who live here. Neat to see relationships blossoming.
