Dulce Refugio update
Tuesday, 08 January 2013
Happy 2013 to you all!!! I hope you had a great time bringing in the new year. The children at Dulce Refugio did! They enjoyed a great time of fellowship praising God for all the blessings of the past year as they look forward to a new year under God’s grace and provision. They also enjoyed some delicious posole (a corn soup), which Marce made. The Children even got to stay up till past midnight…those that could anyways!
In Mexico, January 6 is celebrated as the Day of the Kings (Dia de Los Reyes) in reference to the magi giving gifts to Jesus. Since the children got so spoiled for Christmas, Dulce Refugio hosted a party for the neighbourhood children with the Samaritan’s Purse Christmas boxes from the Operation Christmas Child program. 150 tickets were handed out and 200 people showed up…not a surprise really when the word gets out. When Dulce Refugio hosts one of these events we make sure that there is alot of control factors set up. For instance, the parents aren’t allowed on the property but can see from outside the fence. Only 30 to 50 children are allowed to enter at a time, and there are five stations set up.
