Come with us as we return to South America this summer to volunteer at La Casa De Fe, a home for abandoned and special needs children in Shell, Ecuador.

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” ~Mathew 19:14

Maria’s Art

by sara

Nine year old Maria is one of the sweetest, quietest girls at Casa de Fe. She is also one of the most artistic.

For the past couple of weeks she and one of the babies have been separated from the other kids (they got chicken pox). To keep her company the other volunteers and I have been going in to read books, play games, and do art projects.

We have been bringing in the preplanned crafts that the VBS team brought, but we also have been leaving Maria with supplies.

She is so artistic!

She did all of the quilling (twisted paper) without any instructions!


  1. Wow! I am impressed. She is quite the artist!

  2. WOW!
    I can do stick figures.
