Christmas in January…..

We had made the 150 Christmas/School kit bags to hand out in Chimixiya

as well as our kids at the Kid’s Fiesta….

the beginning of January we travelled to Chimixiya to hand out the school kits..

we find children here find it very hard to say “thank you” when you give them something

…it has never been taught…this day they needed to say THANK YOU!

GRACIAS!
