On May 13th, an overflow crowd of families gathered with their children with disabilities to celebrate the vocation of motherhood at our monthly “Amigos de Jesus” gathering of our friends with disabilities in Licey. More than 50 were present to participate in the Bible lesson, songs, crafts, and hearing of our Lord Jesus Christ in His Word. Dr. Marisol Martinez, the director of our Foundation for Children with Disabilities, “Hogares Luterano el Buen Pastor”, gave a small workshop to the parents, giving them specific skills for caring for their children. Later, Pastor Walter Ries Jr., and Vicar Roberto Weber gave a Bible Study giving thanks to our Lord for our mothers and ow He has blessed us through them.
