My Sixth Visit-New feelings

This was my sixth visit with my daughter Nikki to our sister parish.  This year was different in that I was more observant of our first time visitors and the way their hearts went out to our brothers and sisters and especially the children of St James.

There were a couple of college students that have been on more than one trip and if life permits I can see them carry on the sister parish ministry.

It was wonderful to visit with old friends in Lepaterique as well.  On my first visit at our departure celebration I met Carla who was then five years old.  Every year since then we have looked each other up, she is now eleven, it has been very special to be her friend.  This year I met her father.
