The women on the team have been helping with the child sponsorship program to update the children's personal information and take a recent photo to send to sponsors. We have been able to make crafts with them, read Bible stories in Spanish, and play Simon Says and Uno. Other times we sit around and the little girls just watch us and we smile at each other. A smile or a silly face goes a long way in connecting with others when you don't have words.
Speaking of communicating without words...today we met a five year old deaf girl who has not yet learned to speak. Yet her smile and facial expressions light up a room and our hearts. Her joy is contagious!
