Merry Christmas, Everyone from El Salvador!
We are busy here preparing to celebrate Christmas with many different groups of people. And Santa will be joining us as well, so I am super excited for the kids...and even the older adults. But first, before I get ahead of myself, here is what has been happening!!!
Crisis Center... I just can't say enough about the way the Lord is using our Center to reach and change lives. The doctors and dentists are working regularly. We have counseling every day now. We even had a gang member slip a note to one of our counselors saying that he wanted to make an eternal decision. We may not get him out of the gang, but at least he can know the Lord. So HE is using our Center. And of course, I am looking for more ways to reach even more people. Wheels are turning in my head....
Kids Connection Breakfast... Maybe you noticed that I did not say HIV+ Kids Connection Breakfast. That is because we are now going to include kids with cancer as well. They are like the HIV+ kids in that they travel hours to get to the hospital to see the doctor and have their chemo or other treatment, and them will return home, without having eaten anything. They come with various stages of the disease, almost never with smiles, but we are going to change that. We just started this program a few weeks ago and are already seeing changes in their behavior. And as they begin to make eternal decisions, they will even change more. Some of them will not be with us for long and I cannot think about that part. I can only think about seeing them again in eternity and doing everything
