Testimonial of Michelle’s Experiences on our
October 20, 2006
Dear Mama Sharon,
I am home now. Home from the MOST powerful, deeply rewarding,
beautiful and enlightening trip of my lifetime. I might be home,
back to reality, back to the daily grind, back to my duties and
responsibilities, but I am FOREVER changed. Encouraged by the
magnitude of what I experienced. Inspired by seeing how YOU, a
remarkable angel on earth are
able to reach out and make a HUGE difference in the lives of so
many children of Peru.
Handing out bread, bananas, pens, crayons, pencils, school
supplies, clothing, shoes and stuffed animals to all of
those sweet and appreciative little faces was immensely
rewarding. It warmed my heart to see the hundreds of children at
The Universal Heart Restaurant so thankful to each and every one
of us who formed the line that delivered that plate of food and
glass of milk to their eagerly awaiting little hands and
tummies. It was touching to see the children happily run
downstairs to wash their plates after they finished their meal.
They took their job seriously and it showed. They were proud to
have a job to do.
I loved meeting Washington, Carlos, Rogelio, Marlene, Marie
Lilliana and Paul. They are amazing human beings with strong
values and such depth to their character. Each one of them
showed such a grateful and appreciative attitude towards all of
us there. You have given them a chance at life and they truly
want to make a difference in the world. Hallelujah!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for being the amazingly
wonderful, inspiring and beautiful person you are! I love you
with all of my heart and soul!
