I volunteered over the past year at an institution for children with severe disabilities. Each day I had the privilege to spend time with the children who live there and the staff.

In July, we had the opportunity to run 2 different summer camps with our After School kids in Budila. How great to be able to reconnect with the kids during their holiday and spend time playing and sharing more about God’s great love for them!
