This is Stephanie .. she is from the Philippines.
a group pic with us. Wyatt with his cast
Claire, Hannah and Lysa love Rina. She is 17 and is a chaperone. She is from Nepal.
This is Cathy.. she is a chaperone too. She is from the Philippines.
We have followed them since 2009. That is when we met the first group. Our first group is still so very special to our heart. We still pray for them. We spent lots of time with them. We love them. It is a different group every August.
The mixed emotions come in.... as we do not support this organization financially. We love seeing the children perform and we love meeting children from different parts of the world.
When our first group went back to their countries we honestly thought we would never see them again. We made them a scrapbook page, told them we would never forget and we would always pray for them. God has made a way for us to hear updates and even send letters!
When I take these girls ... they see children from different countries and meet them. They are able to talk to the chaperones and they grow to love them. Just last night Alyssa and I skyped with Joy one of the chaperones from the first group we met. Joy lives in the Philippines... in Cebu City. She was telling us about the earthquake. We were able to meet/see her nephew Calix who is 4! Lifetime friends. Lysa so wants to go to the Philippines... to see all her COTW friends and meet her sponsored child JAZZY!
Joy & Alyssa... forever friends.
