Compassion and El Salvador, Take 2.5

As I was heading up to my room last night after posting, I kept thinking things like, "Oh I should have said that,"or "I should have worded that differently." or "I should have linked to Compassion straight from my post." There are just so many experiences and things I would love to share, but there just isn't time, the right words just don't seem to come, and sometimes (i.e. at night when I am tired) my brain just moves a little slow! If you have any questions about this trip or Compassion feel free to leave one in a comment and I will do my best to answer.

So, it is Wednesday morning. I woke up at 5:30 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep so I decided to get up which is why I have time to write this post before the day starts.

At the two Compassion centers we visited yesterday, when we arrived we were treated like rock stars. It was a very warm welcome. We were then treated to a program. One young boy ministered to us by reading John 3:16 and then shared a message on that verse. Children sang and acted out skits. And then at the end of each program, a surprising thing happened (at least to me). The children placed their hands on us (on me) and prayed for us (me). I was so touched. I was so blessed.

Today we will be visiting another center. Then tonight we will be having dinner with kids who have graduated from the Compassion program. I am looking forward to the day.

Sounds like a wonderful experience. Yesterday I was on the computer at your house. Mom was in the kitchen with Mya and I heard Mya say to her, "Grandma Bauer, you sure are a cleaning grandma!" We laughed. Truer words were never spoken. Too bad those cleaning genes didn't rub off on me.

Miss you and praying for you.
Love, Mom

Can you take or post pics of these places? I didn't know if that was possible (b/c of legality), but what it impact it might have on our hearts to give....just a thought.
