February 6th, 2014 – Day 2

This morning we visited the village Parrojas and met all the members of the Dairy Co Operative funded by SHARE. We were very impressed with the success of this dairy operation.

They now have 3 calves and are very proud of them with 4 more cows that are pregnant. We then visited the Greenhouse Co Operatives that SHARE funded. We

The Machry Family: Day 2

Our first lesson today was that a rooster is only a good alarm clock if you want to be awake.  Today we travelled to the new Loving Arms home to see our Sponsor a Home purchases - the bunk-beds and bedding for the, a hutch for the dishes, and pots and pans and household items. It was such a blessing to see the joy on the family’s faces, especially those of the children, when they opened their personal "gift boxes" that we had prepared for them.

Dairy Farm Pilot Program

Today was a very busy and eventful day.  Several members helped in Parrojas with the pens for the Dairy Farm Pilot program.  Currently all cows are living in their respective owners homes.  I am sure they will be happy to get them into their own home!                         The second team worked on the property, helping the mom's with their greenhouse and the third team worked in Corrales sanding desks and painting one of the classrooms.
