I feel like I have been happily busy lately and bursting with things to share on the blog. Hopefully I am not overwhelming anyone out there. I will keep this short, since I just posted last night, but I wanted to share that this past week our friends, that I had talked about in this post, came to Kansas City to visit from Anapra, Mexico. It was nice to see them again, since I have been learning a lot more about their community, the challenges they face there and working to support the rice and beans program that we have there.
|Sorry Katie, not to steal your thunder by posting this before it shows up on your blog, but here is our group as photographed by Brandon.|
We were able to hear from them directly how everything is going. We shared a meal with them on Sunday night and were so lucky to give them a hug, tell them that we think about them everyday and want to come visit them as soon as it’s safe for us and for them to have us. I also sort of promised that I would try to learn some Spanish by the time they came back, better brush off those CDs!
Also, if anyone is interested in sponsoring a child’s education in Anapra (starting at $90/year for an elementary school student) just let me know and I will hook you up with the woman who handles this in Kansas City.
