Being Thankful

The activities today reminded the entire group to appreciate what we all take for granted. This morning our class traveled to an all girls orphanage to help in their garden and hand out gifts. The 16 girls living at the orphanage all came from abusive households around the Dourados area. The girls were extremely friendly and excited to interact with everyone, especially in photography! For lunch, we went to a traditional Brazilian steakhouse, to dine on fresh local meats. Later in the afternoon, the class visited a male homeless shelter, which is run by a Catholic church along with 12 sisters who manage the shelter. Before leaving we drank a local favorite, fresh made pineapple juice!
