Today the Lone Oak High School team visited the village of Ahuachapan, El Salvador.
They delivered bags of rice, beans and sugar to the local families and invited the children to enjoy a carnival they had organized for them!
They painted faces, made balloon animals, put on puppet shows, passed out treat bags…
and perhaps taught them a little bit about encouraging the University of Kentucky Wildcats to hit some
3 point shots in today’s game! HaHa!
The group then headed back to CIPI in the afternoon where they were able to visit with some of the friends they made on Thursday!
Tonight they were back at it, making making meals and sending out a team to feed the homeless.
Tomorrow the team will be going to San Martin to visit with some more Starfish friends! The facility at San Martin houses special needs orphans from about 12 years old through adults. It is sure to be a long and fun filled day! The residents love to share their school work, sewing and baking classes and you can almost always guarantee that they’ll be counting on an afternoon of games and dancing before our group leaves!
