Casa Hogar es Muy Especial

Just a quick post during my time to clean up for dinner.  I will expound more tonight but I thought I should get some pics up.  But first, thanks for the prayers.  Things seem to be going amazingly well and I have been at total peace.  The team is getting along great.  Praise God!

As for the orphanage…  I need to prcess that a bit before I post about it.  Good stories, bad stories, great kids.  So much to digest.  Anyway, here is a glimpse into my world.

First thing we visited the Coita water station.  Waiting for water.  They serve over 3000 people a day in Coita.

  2. Hello Shane! This is Felix from Germany. I was just wondering whether the hogar infantil you have visited and stayed at is in Ocozocoautla de Espinosa? Because it kind of sounds like it and it is where I will be going in one week to spend 1year there. I just found your Blog searching through google and I thought I write to you – maybe you can tell me some interesting things about the project or you can give some advice concerning travelling Chiapas… that would be nice! See you, Felix
