Spring 2013: Casa Angelina Preparations
Spring 2013 Trip to Casa Angelina
Agua Viva International has been VERY busy. We now have 23 volunteers signed up to go to Casa Angelina in March of 2013. We are very excited about God’s plans for us and we shall faithfully abide.
Casa Angelina (House of Angels) is an orphanage in Chimeltenango, Guatemala. It was created partly with children abandoned at landfills in Guatemala. They presently have about 100 children.
Our volunteers have now begun preparations and our first planning meeting was last weekend. We a little luck and God’s blessing, we should be purchasing plane tickets TODAY. That has been quite a job and we are hopeful that we can clear this hurdle.
We are also very pleased that three of our volunteers are from Freedom Fire Urban Ministries. Vonnell Brown and Aheem Kimmins will be joining us and as an added blessing, Kevin Casey’s son, Nicholas Casey will be with us, too. All of these have now applied for passports and getting ready to get “shots”. Ouch !! This is a big deal to Agua Viva. Providing this unique opportunity provides an exceptional learning experience for everyone. Praise God. Now, if the passports will just arrive before departure !!!
Another wonderful element of this trip is we have reached out beyond Kansas City. We have six volunteers from northwest Missouri, one volunteer from Mississippi, and one volunteer from South Dakota. How cool is that? It is pretty crazy trying to get all of the plane tickets to converge.
