"Let all the children come onto me'- Jesus

Embraced by Jesus Children's Home

I had the wonderful privilege to spend 7 days in Pereira, Colombia at the Embraced by Jesus Home. Words cannot explain the blessing that it was to meet Jaime and Rubiela and all the children. 
When we got there on Monday Feb 18th I was delighted with the warm weather as soon as we stepped out of the airport. Then we headed to the Children's home. We got there around 12:30am. It was a very long day for the ones that travel from PA. ( Naomi & Ivan Wipf and myself)

Our days were spent like this...

Drinking the best coffee in the world and doing lots of translating.

Anna Marie showed pics to the children a lot.They enjoyed that! 

Need a helping hand?? The children also loved to help the guys work.

Playing with dolls..All girls love that :)

Us ladies went to town for the day and ate Bandeja Paisa a delicious dish from Colombia. Rubiela(on the front left) walked us around the town and showed us where alot of the children came from. Was a blessing to know that and how our Lord Jesus has saved them from that world! 

Cake for 70 people! Everyone loved it!! Thanks Anna Marie for the great idea.

The guys making steps. Good job everyone!!

I could say more and more. I am VERY thankful that God gave me this wonderful opportunity to visit Colombia! I want to thank the children's staff for everything they did for us. Gracias!! Y Dios los bendiga a todos! Estare orando por ustedes! Los extra~o!
