What a great day to be a Castillo Kid!! 😀
It’s been a few weeks since we’ve been able to check the mail and we got 68 cards this weekend!! WAHOO!!!
I love watching the excitement of the kids when they see that many people were thinking about them. I laid all the cards out on the bed and then called them in! I wish I would have done a video because their eyes got SO BIG – and they were jumping up and down!
You have NO IDEA how exciting it is to get mail of any kind! It can get lonely here and sometimes the smallest note can just lift the spirit like nothing else! So THANK YOU for lifting the spirits of 8 beautiful kids who feel called to care for their orphan brothers & sisters!
We will be hanging up all our cards in the orphanage this week. It’s been fun listening to the kids talk about what they want to get for their friends. The girls have talked about buying them candy, ice cream, pizza, spaghetti, peanut butter, church clothes, & a dvd player.
The boys however have been talking about scooters, a trampoline, a movie theater, buying them tickets to Disney World, & seeing if Chuck E Cheese would come for a visit! (Yeah….they really don’t have a concept of how much all of that costs or what is involved in taking 35 orphans to Orlando!)
I told the boys maybe they should PRAY about it a little more and think about what the kids might need the most! LOL! They collected $79.00 today and 24.00 from the last time we checked the mailbox. So they have $103.00 total to put towards their Orphan Ministry!!
If you would like to join the Dollar Club and send a card to Gigi, Mikela, Rosie, Malaya, Gabriel, Levi, Asher, or Isebelle – you can mail it to:
Jose Castillo (and the name of the child)
3170 Airmans Dr #2189 NWHCM
Ft Pierce, FL 34946
Just a reminder… The mail goes to Florida and then is flown over to Haiti. We check the mailbox in Port-au-Prince about every 10 days or so. So if you sent a letter and it’s not in the photos there is a delay from the time you send it until we get it in the Mole. Keep the cards coming!!! Together we can do a lot!
