The best invention
Sign up here for the
photo of the month
     Perhaps the human race’s best invention has been the wheel. At least, that’s what we’ve been thinking lately. In Spanish, when something is going well we say “it’s on wheels” (“va sobre ruedas”). Our van is very important, both to ferry children around and to load up with the necessary housekeeping supplies. This new vehicle, with more capacity, is a great blessing compared to the various limitations of our previous one.

       We are very grateful to all those who, over the last few years, have made extra donations, especially for this purpose. It has taken a long time and a lot of effort to reach a final decision, one that had to be postponed several times, but at last we have met the need satisfactorily. Each and every one of your contributions, both large and small, have played and important part. They have all added up to make it a reality.

     The new van and all the other material resources which we need here at the Children’s Home, are only secondary tools. But they are important for us to be able to carry out our main task, that of caring for and bringing up the children in our charge. If our material needs are not met, then our human resources falter, as if they were running on “square wheels”. It would be like “putting a stick in the spokes” of the wheels of our mission.

     In the photo you can see some of the children trying out the new van for the first time. Enjoy it with us, because, as some of them say, “it still smells new inside!” Enjoy the trip!

    Our photo of the month is a brief message to convey information and our thanks to all those who support and share in the work of our children's home. Thank you.   -Emmanuel Children's Home-
