Remembering Padre Wasson, Part 2

Every year on the anniversary of the death of Padre Wasson, each section of kids spends the day doing community service outside of the home. Some kids go machete down overgrown lawns, other clean local houses, and some visit nursing homes. My girls distributed clothing and food to families in nearby Parramos, and I headed out with them last Sunday.

It’s a fun experience to spend time with them outside of NPH’s walls, and it’s crazy to watch them grow up right before your eyes as they take control – knocking on doors, introducing themselves, and commenting on how dire these people’s living situations are. Setting loose a bunch of preteens is also bound to be an adventure, to say the least. :)

Fording the river, no big deal.

They were very into taking photos.
