Unveiling our NEW dining room...

Last week, some of our volunteers and Tio David took on a HUGE project.

Here are the behind-the-scene pictures and final results!

Taking down several years of accumulated artwork and displays

David tackling the ceiling, covered in tape from balloons and streamers from many birthday parties

Katrina working on a wall (this was all HER idea!!)

Work Zone!!

Beginning to paint!

Johanna and Katrina

A green beam to add "pop" to the room, in the words of Elena

A tree and birds...

...inspired by the cover of this journal, a birthday gift given to me last month by Kiwi Katrina! :)

The logo taking shape under Elena's skillful hand!

Canadian Katrina took on the tedious task of going back over all of Elena's artwork


...and after!!

What an amazing job!!

A lot of work and consultation went into choosing the colors and I REALLY like them!

It's not all that clear in these photo, thanks to the shiny washable background paint, but there are also two scriptures:

This is Luke 18:17 in Spanish: "Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it."

And James 1:27, another beautiful verse: "Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world."

Sprouting up flowers!

Thank you so much to everyone who collaborated on this big project! It will be a blessing to our children, staff, and visitors for many years to come. :)
