We Have 3 More!!!!

We have been blessed with 3 more girls today. They are sisters from Mexicali and are 5, 8 and 11 years old. They are good girls and as usual, the youngest is the most vocal and outgoing. Luckily for us its summer and we will have a chance to get everyone together, get our routines established and have everyone on the same page. We are very happy to have these girls here and it will make up for some of the losses we have had with some of the temporary girls leaving. Yamilet came to us at 3 months old, very thin and very sick. With the help and advice of Dr. Dara we helped her recover her health and almost double in weight before she went to live with her Aunt just before she turned 7 months old. It was a very sad day for us to see her go, but in the big picture it was best for her. Like it says in the Bible, some of us plant seeds, some tend and water and some receive the fruit. We are glad to be able to do our part with your help.
With our donation of a freezer from Mark L. we have been able to make large quantities of chili, spaghetti sauce, quiche, pies and lasagna to help keep our food costs down. We were really blessed by George W. with a new high quality pressure cooker so we are now planning on canning foods as we can buy them in bulk. I know Audrey has donated jams and jellies she has canned and if she or someone who knows how to can would like to help teach us, we are looking to get started.
The more we can make our money stretch the more effective we can be helping these girls, and none of this would be possible without everybody’s help. Thank you all and God Bless.
