This past year was one of new opportunities, and personal growth for women involved in the Free The Girls program here at MTES. We continue to be grateful to FTG for partnering with us and enabling us to serve these women that we love and respect.
Our girls worked hard in El Salvador this year. For some it has been a year of personal struggle, for others a year of victory. We took some time the week before Christmas to celebrate all of these amazing survivors and to dream together about 2015.
We had a guest speaker from Pittsburgh share with us about her own painful past, and the beauty that God has brought from it. Many of the women had tears streaming down their faces as they listened to her share her personal experiences. We had some moments to pray specifically for each of the women, their families, and their requests for the New Year.
The party was a blast with coffee, Christmas cookies, games for the kids, and gifts for everyone. We are grateful to our volunteers and donors who made this party possible! We also want to say a huge thank you to all of you who have supported these women in 2014 through donating bras, praying, and cheering us all on. We are looking forward to a great year with our girls in 2015!
Presents ready to go under the tree! We were blessed with donors who helped support our Christmas party, and for the children of one of our donors who packed, wrapped, and delivered gifts for all the kids who have moms in the program.
Meanwhile, the kids had a great time in the game room!
