We received some wonderful photos from Tanzania, of the orphanage center, and the girls. All are doing well; their tuitions are paid for 2014, and they are looking forward to next year. When we have letters and grade reports, we’ll let you all know. For now, here are some great photos. They are growing up so fast!

Bharosha and Roshani Send Cards
We received cards and grades from our contact in Nepal. Bharosha is doing very well, ranking 8th in her class. Roshani is struggling a little, so our contact Subash is giving her some extra tutoring after school to help her out. We are very grateful to Subash for his dedication to these girls. They also made some cards for us, with help from the older students at the school, since neither one of them speaks English right now. We love the cards, and hope we get to see them dance one day!

On Thanksgiving, we received this note from Camila in Tegucigalpa: Hola soy Camila, hoy en la escuela celebramos el dia de accion de gracias y solo queria agradecerte de poder estudiar en l.w.a. feliz dia de accion de gracias espero verte pronto. Con amor, Camila
Translation: Hi, it’s Camila. Today in school we celebrated Thanksgiving, and I just wanted to thank you for being able to study at LWA (Living Water Academy). Happy Thanksgiving, I hope to see you soon. With love, Camila.
It IS a day of Thanksgiving when we get photos and letters like this! Thanks to all who have donated to help make these pictures and letters possible!
