Summer Update 2013

These past months have brought groups, individuals and mission teams, mostly from the United States and Canada, who have spent time loving on and playing with our children, putting on special Vacation Bible Schools and contributing to work projects around The Josephine House.

Our kids, as always, have loved the extra attention and new play partners. ¬†If you’ve been used as a jungle gym by some of our more energetic ones, we hope your memory is a fond one (and that you haven’t required follow-up chiropractic care)!

Below: an unusual quiet moment with a visitor…
