For many years, Casa de Amor has been blessed by the visits and hard work of teams from Denmark. The team is called Alterna, and visits Bolivia for several weeks each year. Alterna is made up of high school students and teachers, and always comes prepared to love and serve! Many wonderful long-term volunteers have also come out of these teams.
This year, Alterna arrived at Casa de Amor and listened to a little bit of the history of the home.
After a quick tour, everyone got to work! The guys were a huge help with yard work that often gets pushed to the bottom of the priority list. They mowed, weed-eated, trimmed trees, and rooted out lots of weeds!
The girls were a huge help with the babies, and also went through the toy collection to throw away broken toys and small pieces
After working hard all morning, the tias had cooked a delicious meal, and everyone sat down to eat.
As the older kids arrived from school, they were slightly overwhelmed but very excited about having so many visitors!
After lunch, the team presented several skits with the gospel presented clearly. The kids laughed and enjoyed watching the “silly visitors”! (Most of the kids, some of the younger ones weren’t fans of the clowns. J ) The kids even got to participate in some of the skits!
Thank you to the Alterna team, and to all who pray and support the children of Casa de Amor!
