June Highlights
Have you ever been so overwhelmed by God’s goodness that you couldn’t stop smiling? This is how the leadership of Chicktime San Antonio felt as we drove away from our June activity. Thanks to our monthly leaders, Mary Young and Dawn Gayden for showing the beautiful women of Casa De Milagros Emergency Shelter how to make their own wall hanging crucifixes out of rulers and clothes pins. Such unusual materials to create such an awesome reminder to those present that they are loved by the Chicktime ladies in San Antonio, but even better by our Father in heaven! The women of this shelter have left extreme poverty and situations that we may never understand and it was truly God’s work to watch them let their guards down and smile and visit with each other and with the volunteers.

Fruit kabobs, fruit salads and Jello molds made for a lite and refreshing snack for the girls. The girls had their choice of chocolate dip or chili powder to drench the fruit in….some chose both. We wrapped up our time together by having the volunteers lay hands over the girls as they sat around a large table area. A blessing and prayer was said over them and prayer requests were taken from the young women who are away from their home and families.

As the girls left, the volunteers gathered in a circle and specifically prayed for the requests of the women and we were also able to pray over our monthly leaders who will be starting a new Chicktime Chapter at St. PJ’s. Thank you Jesus for people who want to share Your love and grace and give others hope.
Special thanks to Jeanne Schafer for leading the teens who came to babysit the babies and toddlers so their moms could have some respite time. Jeanne always comes with outstretched arms to love God’s children.
Babysitting at Seton Home
We want to thank those volunteers that showed up on Friday, June 20th, to help with babysitting the infants and toddlers so that their moms could take part in the graduation festivities at Seton Home. We had a good time playing and feeding the little ones their dinners. What a bunch of little cuties!
