Our trip was amazing. We have so many stories to tell.
Here are just a few things that happened. I’ll write more about them in coming weeks.
Amigos de San Manuelito, our nonprofit organization, has our first board member in Peru.
We met a girl whom we thought needed a wheelchair – and we ended up buying her a bike.
Even though we had promised ourselves we wouldn’t, we added a new school. It started with an ice cream cone.
And we visited a 12-year-old girl, our friend since she was five, who lives in severe poverty, in a one-room home with her grandmother. I told her, “I want to buy you a present. What would you like?” She was quiet for a minute, then answered, “Nothing. I have everything.” We bought her new shoes.
Every time I close my eyes, I see the children’s faces.
