Bittersweet / Freedom in their Hearts

From Megan and Abby

I would describe today something like bitter sweet. We went to the work sites for the final time, and took pictures of our progress with the families. We also went to classrooms and handed out shorts, shirts, shoes, and toothpaste. I have never in my life seen kids so happy to receive a tube of toothpaste or a shirt that is a 3XL. I am ready to come home and see my family and friends, but at the same time it is hard to say goodbye and leave when there is so much to still be done. Also, HAPPY 14TH BIRTHDAY ADAM!!! Good luck on your permit test :) -Megan
Hola amigos! Today was probably one of the hotter days but it's been great so far. I'm excited to go home but know it will be extremely heart-breaking to say goodbye. The freedom in all of these people's hearts is amazing. They inspire me to appreciate what I'm given and all the oppotunities I have. I've also learned to simply be happy constantly because no matter where these kids are or what they are doing they have a smile on their face. They always drop what they are doing just to give you the biggest hug and grin. See you all soon! Adios! :) -Abby

  2. A heartfelt Thank you to all of you who made this trip possible- the Seiverts, Fr Cos, Sr Joan, Chaparones, parents and Heelan Srs. Your sacrifice and courage will be forever imprinted in the hearts of all you have touched. As I read the blogs and viewed the pictures this week, most times with a tear in my eye(I know you are shocked, Madeline) I could truely feel Christs Grace and Peace shine in all of you. We are so proud of how you shared your God given talents in such a genunine, compassionate way. I know this is just another step in your Christ centered journey and I pray you allow all of us to travel with you. Give lots of hugs then hurry safely home cause we miss you so much and can't wait to hear your stories. See you tomorrow night...Love Mary and John
