Dear Friends of ¨Casa Milagro¨!!!
Many loving wishes to you for the New Year!!!
After the big ¨High¨of the end of the Mayan Calendar at the 21. We are back to normal so to speak. There were many celebrations for this shift in almost all villages around the lake, and in historical sites like Tikal etc.
Our Christmas events were another highlight for us, celebrating not only with the traditional tree and stars, tamales, all kinds of sweets – but also looking back to 20 years (in August) of many different activities, like all kinds of workshops for children, counseling about family planning, hygiene, dental care, hospital, alphabetization for mothers, house building and house remodeling for seniors, meals and food deliveries for seniors, help with retire mental plan etc.
Reflecting on all that we can let go easier of painful experiences, for instance this year we had the loss of a great friend for so many years, Aria Rose in California. Aria was actually a health practitioner, but was very much engaged in the sale of our handicrafts; wherever she went she took her basket with her and talked to people about us. That was Miracle in Action!!! Beside the pain of losing a friend I am so very grateful!!!
Aria also left a gap in our financial base, we have to find more new friends to help us continuing the good work and also keeping our independence from ¨just donations by selling our items! Please, contact me to get more information, it doesn´t have to be a big approach, it can be a onetime sale at home with family members or neighbors etc.
We also like to invite you to support our old and very needy senior widows, by starting a partnership with only 35 $ a month, this is all it takes to cover all basic expanses – please visit our website!
FINALLY I LIKE TO THANK ALL FRIENDS NEAR AND FAR FOR THEIR SUPPORT! PLEASE, RECEIVE OUR DEEPEST GRATITUDE FOR YOUR HELP! WE ARE VERY HOPEFUL THAT WE CAN CONTINUE AND MAYBE EVEN IMPROVE OUR PROGRAM, HELPING MORE WIDOWS IN NEARBY VILLAGES ETC.
AND ALL BEST WISHES FOR THE NEW YEAR, MAY IT BE FRUITFUL, MAY THEIR BE WAYS TO BE CREATIVE AND STRONG TO LIVE OUR DREAMS! MAY THERE BE MIRACLES!!!
Yours, Thilda and the ¨Miracle House¨!!!
