A quick update…

It’s been a wild few weeks since we returned from the States. We really enjoyed our time in Kansas and Iowa visiting with family and celebrating Annie’s sister, Emily’s wedding to Steven. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

The reason we haven’t written in so long is becuase we’ve been very busy at the newly opened Casa Hogar. With much anticipation on November 20th, 18 children and 5 aging entered the home with luggage in tow. Since it’s opening, we have added 6 new children for a grand total of 24 kids. We wake up at 5:45 each morning and after a quick shower, head over to Casa Hogar to get the kids bathed and ready for the day. Then it’s non-stop until 9 p.m. when the kids go to sleep. Needless to say, our days our very full. At the end of the night, updating our blog has taken a back seat to crawling into bed to rest before another day begins.

The kids are easy to love–they are all so cute and affectionate. But they also need a lot of attention and special care. Please pray for all the kids, employees, and families involved with Casa Hogar.

We recently returned from another Mission Awareness Trip to El Salvador where we served as translators. The video below is from our first trip to El Salvador in October. On that trip we had the pleasure of meeting CFCA sponsor, Tori, and her sponsored child, Miriam. Enjoy their story!
