Cheshire Home turns 20 years!

There is an amazing school near us for children with disabilities.  The lady that started it is still there.  She began her fund raising by selling ice cubes for N$.50 This 5 cents in the US.  She is originally from Poland.  In countries such as these, the children are cursed with a disability so the parents are not proud and do not want them to be out in public.  So this place has encouraged the parents and especially the children that they are different, but there are others like them and they CAN be successful and get a job.

The event was a blessing with 2 of the graduates coming back and giving motivational speeches to the others.  There was a cultural group that danced (pictures).  A speech from the Governor, songs from the Cheshire children and even lunch!  We have joined our groups together for a fun time but it reminded me that we have not done so for a while.  So we are planning for the get together of Zion and Cheshire before the end of the year!!!! 

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
