Tonight the National Honor Society of Colegio Jorge Washington (that's my school) spent some of their Friday night (pretty admirable for a group of teenagers, don't you think?) providing cookies for over 500 children in la iglesia de Bosque. They also took gifts for 250 children, which the priest will distribute, and provided money to buy approximately 100 chickens for Christmas dinners for the families of the church. Michelle was blessed by the gratefulness of some of the children for such a small token, but Melissa expressed her frustation of not being able to do more to meet the needs of some of the children who are extremely poor. I'm proud of these students, and tonight I was blessed by their sacrifice of time and generous spirits.
