Fun and games

While the kitchen is getting build, let's remember who and what for we are building it.


For these marvelous kids to have a future. But also present.


That's why we arranged a little day of fun and games for them. Man, were they excited or what!


Around 90 children showed up. They dressed up in their best. And warm too, was pretty chilly.


We had dramas, games, small messages, juice and cookies. Nathan taught the kids a very strict Swiss march.


You know how hard it is to keep your eyes closed during a prayer? It's really hard.


It wasn't anything spectacular. Not even massive. Just something to do. To have fun.


Get together. To show that no matter where you come from, we are the same.


All we need is some shelter, food and drink.


And a friend to hug.


I don't have to know Spanish to tell that things are about to get real. I have this feeling it had something to do with the cookies.


I would love to see these heroes grow up and what are they about to become. Well, not Nathan. He's just gonna stay as a great Swiss. Maybe with an Guatemalan accent.


The impact of open arms and a little snack. Priceless.


In the end of it, when we were pretty worn out, they had only warmed up.


Ah, what a day it was.

Bless!

P.S. And because I can, ducks and clowns.
