An Afternoon with the Elderly from our Community

The Tiu Rancho staff celebrated Senior Citizens Day on August 26 with 56 elderly from the Tiu Rancho community.

Alex was the host and did an excellent job. I couldn’t understand a word spoken since everything was in Quechua but I could see on their faces how much they enjoyed themselves.

We ended the afternoon eating plates of food that were large enough to serve a lumber jack. The staff had been so careful in choosing the food since many of the older folks have no teeth and have sensitive stomachs.

As they were leaving they expressed their gratitude for the afternoon by smiling and fervently shaking my right hand and touching my left shoulder.

God blessed us all through these moments together.
