We visited the highway community of Tejeras for the Friday evening feeding session. There were about 50-60 children and a few mothers there. As usual, the children were all seated and waiting patiently to be served. Their meal consisted of tortillas with beans and meat, and a glass of juice. Each started with 2 tortillas, and I saw several children put half their meal aside to take home for someone else or for later consumption. Many came back to get a third tortilla. It was all very organized and orderly.
One of the girls who led the prayer and served many of the children was Delcia, a recent addition to the Agape Promises program. I am her new sponsor, and this was our first opportunity to meet. She is a lovely young lady, and appeared to be very shy when we were introduced. I hope to get to know her better during the remainder of this trip.
