I hear about the struggle parents are facing trying to keep their kids home from school durring the COVID-19 pandemic and I sympathise with them, but can you imagine having 60 children stuck inside durring this time! Pastor Gardea has let us know that the children at Casa Hogar and El Porvenir have been quarantined to protect them during the pandemic. He says, “They are like lions in a cage!” His family has taken on the challenge to keep the kids comfortable by providing morning and afternoon shifts to go into the orphanages and do activities with them, provide extra snacks, etc. The children are not even permitted to go outside! Your prayers are appreciated for the children and caregivers as these events stretch their capabilities.
Below, Mizraim has some fun with one group of the children, making hand puppets out of medical gloves!
Update on Pastor Gardea. His surgery has been postponed due to the coronavirus. We will provide additional information as it becomes available.
