Today was a gift from God. It was a day that I did not want to end. Brandi, Trey, Douglas and I went with Gary (executive director of La Casa) to the farm that they purchased. There, we were able to walk and see the 28 acres purchased for the homes that will be built for the orphans.
After we walked the property, we said good-byes to Douglas as he left for Tegucigalpa and hello to the children at La Casa for an afternoon of fun! We went with the staff to the park and gave the children cookies and raisins. As I watched them playing and laughing, I couldn't help but laugh myself at how we always think we have things figured out.......and, yet....we never really do. God's plan is so much better than any plan that we can dream up. Today I'm thankful that He is teaching me to wait on Him. I am so excited about developing a partnership with this program and taking a team to assists the children's families, perhaps even Abby's and Ericka's family.
