Dear Friends and Family,
In the midst of transition we continue to face more changes. At the end of September, our psychologist resigned. She was offered a job at PANI. So that left us looking for her replacement. We found a terrific candidate that will be an asset as we move forward with our new model! Alejandra has experience working in the court system with victims of domestic violence. Throughout this year’s ups and downs, we continue to see God’s mercy in our lives.
As Alejandra has begun getting acquainted with the kids and has read their files, she has noticed a marked difference in their “before” and “after” story. One day, she was working with Samuel. She asked him what was his favorite color. Immediately, he told her red and asked, “Do you want to know why?” Then he went on to explain that red represents the blood Jesus shed out of love for us. It is clear that the children are learning about the true meaning of Christmas. Amid the festivities, the real celebration is taking place; the joy of observing Jesus’s birthday and the reason for His coming to earth.
We are so thankful as we close out this year, we have had the incredible support of so many. We are grateful for each of you! Our prayer for you this Christmas is:
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” a (Romans 15:13)
The Thomas Family
