This month we did something a little different. I will share more about that in the next few posts because it would have been major picture overload if I had done it all in one post. Therefore, I am splitting it up.
Each month I have intended to bring my camera to get some images of these precious faces and the things we do out there. Each time I have forgotten my camera. Last month I finally remembered it. However, the battery died just as I turned it on. Finally this month I remembered my fully charged camera. I got some great images.
As I was there with the kids taking pictures, in my minds eye I kept going back to the place that sorta began this in the first place. Peru.
When we got home from Peru we knew that we wanted to incorporate some of what we had done in Peru with the children there, and bring it to children here. That is where this Neighborhood Children's Outreach was born. The precious Peruvian children touched our hearts. We were incredibly blessed by spending time with the children there and sharing our love and Gods love with them. That is our intent here as well with precious children in our own town.
As I looked at each little face I saw a child that deserved to be loved well.
I saw a child that deserved to be played with
and deserved to be hugged.
This weekend these smiling faces made me smile too.
They made Todd smile too.
The next post I will have more pictures from the weekend event and will go into more detail of what we did.
