Days for Girls Carries on in Yakima!

IMG_1914Today was our monthly Days for Girls event in Yakima.  Next month we will celebrate our 3 year anniversary of this excellent service here.  I am sad to miss that party.  Today was a sweet time together with these dear friends.  Here are our DfG Yakima leaders:

IMG_1915IMG_1920IMG_1921We met Mary, from the West Valley Foursquare Church, who is working with a group traveling to Uganda in July.  Their church runs an orphanage there with about 180 children.  We gave her 30 kits to take to their young girls, with love from all of us here in Yakima.
