IRISH BLESSING, www.laweddingwoman.com "May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon the fields.

May the joy of living for one another trip a smile from your lips, A twinkle from your eye...."
After studying all week, the children at VOH Mwanza are happy to relax and play on the weekend. They also love to pose for pictures! It's easy to see the hope in their faces and with some of the very sad backgrounds they have come from, it is a blessing to see the smiles and hear the laughter as they have fun with one another. The children know they are loved and they feel safe and secure at Village of Hope. #smile #kids
