July Activity
On Saturday, July 19th, we had an upbeat and energetic morning at Casa de Milagros as a large group of teen girls from Heather Stolle’s Dance Studio put on a dance clinic.

God gave all of these beautiful girls amazing talent and, better yet, kind hearts to share with other girls who are deeply in need of love and the knowledge that someone out there cares enough to spend time with them. They learned many dance moves to the latest pop tunes. And then, amazingly, several of the girls from Casa de Milagros decided they wanted to teach our teen volunteers popular dances from their home countries. It was an amazing cultural experience that the girls could come together and have such a great time learning from each other even though they didn’t speak the same language. At the end, there were plenty of smiles to go around as they snacked on kabobs made of fruit, brownie bites, and marshmallows—YUM!

We also had a group of volunteers that babysat the toddlers and some infants. We especially had fun rocking a couple of newborns. What precious little angels they were!

Special appreciation goes out to Sharlene Eckhardt for coordinating this activity and for all the teen girls and their moms that showed up to volunteer.
