They have interacted with the children at Agape as well as at the work sites with friendship and laughter. The language barrier has been no barrier for them. Actually, their command of Spanish has been immensely helpful to the team. Even those who don’t speak Spanish as well have had no problem communicating with the children, who latch onto our kids and want them to stay forever.
They have bonded with each other deeply. Although Rebecca and Sarah were strangers at first, they are strangers no longer, fitting in as if they were the missing pieces to our puzzle. The kids are considerate of each other’s feelings, laugh and tease and play, and have accepted the crazy idiosyncrasies of us all without being judgmental.
In sum, the teenagers on this team have added energy, enthusiasm, and excitement to this trip. Their conduct at work and at play has exemplified our Christian ideals. Parents, you should be proud of your children. I know I am.

Youth workers are the best! I’m glad every one is working hard and having a great time. I’d like to see some more pictures of the older kids though.
Hey, Barb, it’s Pattie Molen. You guys are doing great! Wish I was there too. Love you, Pattie
