My heart is bursting. Look what I got today on WhatsApp!

The girls are going to stay at the Hogar all summer because of the virus. But is that keeping them from having Campamento 2020? No!

Above is their list of camp activities that they will lead. They are even getting t-shirts to dye (or decorate). I am beyond proud of them and I hope everyone else involved in camp is, too. These girls are so resilient!

From Sister Fifi… my translations follow.
“Las niñas mañana inician su campamento.” [The girls tomorrow are starting their camp.]

“Me han hecho una lista de todo lo que van hacer😂😂😂” [They have made a list of everything they do]

“Ellas dicen que son las americanas.” [They said that they are the Americans.]

“Y van a dirigir.” [and they are going to lead.]
“Les voy a dar materiales de los que dejaron.” [I am going to give them the materials you left.]
“Hoy a comprarle camisetas porque quieren pintar.” [Today I bought them t-shirts because they want to dye them.]
Estan muy motivadas. [They are very motivated.]

“Este año no podrán ir de vacaciones por el virus.” [This year they won’t be able to go on vacation (home to their families) because of the virus.]

“Cada una tiene su personaje.” [Each girls has their own personality.]

I am so proud of them for making the best of a tough situation. And Sister Fifi is so supportive of them. I hope everyone else feels the same!! So many people have been a part of campamento, either traveling, volunteering here, or donating. It’s been such a blessing in my life and I’m humbled that it’s continuing even in 2020!!

Campamento 2019

I hope they send us pictures from Campamento 2020!! If so, I’ll post them!
