I met someone who impressed the socks off of my today.
Andrea and her husband (who is currently in India on a church mission trip)
run a little orphanage in Croix du Bouquet, an area of PAP.
She and her husband came to PAP to start an orphanage 6 weeks after they married!
Wow, what a honeymoon!
Now they have 26 kids who are loved and beautifully cared for by the Brewers.
One of our favorite girls - Wilnise.
Never stopped smiling the whole time we were there.
We spent an afternoon at the orphanage checking them out medically
and starting medical charts for them.
We enjoyed playing with them, giving them candy
(hey, we are the medical caregivers, not the dentists - don't judge!),
and receiving a gift of a spontaneous dance from the kids.
The song that they were singing is a Shakira song that was made popular
at the last World Cup games.
It was much fun to watch the kids dance and then to watch
our team member Stefanie join in.
I will be very interested to see how this orphanage evolves.
Sweet kids being loved by sweet people - it's a good start!
