Socks and Love

What a week! Not only is Ashely such a huge blessing to everyone on the team, she's updating my blog for me! woohoo! I'm getting a lot of work out of this girl! Great to have you here Ashely!


On Monday we went back to the Nueva Asentamiento that Ashley wrote about on her post. I was able to put Project Socks into action! So, we noticed that a lot of kids do not have socks, and it's getting COLD now. (see-your-breath-wear-4-layers-of-clothing COLD!) On Saturday, I bought 180 pairs of socks to start my project. My project consists of giving socks to kids who don't have any on their feet. At the Nueva Asentamiento, I literaly gave socks to every kid there. Today, I only found 1 sock-less nino and called him over to the pickup truck, "Hey kid, are your feet cold? Come here." I felt like I was smuggling drugs or something...



Yesterday, I started to feel sick and yucky. We got to one of the schools and I just laid down in the car, not wanting to move a muscle. My friends offered to cover my parts of the show, but I have some long lines that no one else has memorized, so I knew I had to do it. I stayed horizontal until it was absolutely starting time. When I walked over to our stage, the kids started clapping! WHAT?! It made me feel so loved to see that these kids cared that I was there! A gift of love when I wasn't feeling well...

Awww I love this post. I will be praying that you are feeling better! You're such a sock smuggler!

It'd be much better if you wore a long trench coat and had all the socks hung in there, right next to the Rolex and Omega watches. Just constantly walking around muttering "Gucci, Prada, Coach, Socks..."

Glad you're doing well sis!
