Dear Everyone,

We (my Mercy Centre family and I) stumble through life… never knowing the lyrics nor the music to the songs that every new day brings to each of us… never knowing the storyline of each sunrise or sunset.

But we are happy, and try to be joyful with all the Lord sends us between earth and sky, and we learn from our children here at Mercy to try to have as much fun as possible with each new day, and perhaps in doing so, say our prayers along the way, and help another child.

Here is a Valentine’s gift to all our friends: a short video showing how our slum kindergarten kids welcome each new school day. (Watch the video.)

Happy Valentine’s Day.
