The entire group was excited and looking forward to today's visits. Those who had been on past trips always enjoy seeing the familiar faces of our friends, and those who had not been before, were looking forward to seeing the sweet people they'd heard so much about. As usual, today's visit to San Martin felt like an emotional roller coaster. It was a long, emotionally draining day for our team, but filled with rewards!
They were greeted by the infamous David with a big "What's up?" and of course his unforgettably contagious smile! From there they visited the small dormitories on the grounds and saw one suffering special needs resident after another. With their hearts broken for those laying in their beds all day, or those who wanted to go outside but couldn't without extra help, they gathered with many residents on the front lawn. The precious residents of San Martin loved "duck, duck, goose", blowing bubbles, puppets, crafts, etc.
