The Hanna Project team provided VBS for two days at Antioch Christian Academy. An incredibly special team put together and delivered the program to nearly 50 first and second graders at the academy. Team Leader Babara Hosiner along with her teammates Lizzie Stevanus, Courtney Anderson, Sabrina Lafferty, Mallorie Bigham, Baylee Freeman, and Kaylee Linnebur provided lessons, games and crafts. The students had lots of energy, but had fun with our team. James Lafferty gave invaluable ESL (English as a Second Language) lessons to the bi-lingual students at ACA.
Ariadna conducted valuable training to the teachers at ACA during our final afternoon in Misahualli. Classroom discipline, emotional and social concerns were taught and discussed. She also taught children at the village schools our medical team visited each day of the week. Using the “Wordless Book” and many colorful illustrations, she shared the GREATEST story of all with the children each day.
Besides medical supplies, Team Ecuador 2017 took gifts with us. Some ladies from AR donated cute pillowcase dresses to the little girls in the villages we visited. Once the dresses were handed out, the little girls put them on immediately over their school uniforms. It was heart-warming watching the little girls try on and model their dresses.
Several families from MO donated nearly 140 baseball caps. They were distributed in the villages and the little boys were thrilled with their new caps.
Our youngest team member (age 6) donated a box full of pencils, which were distributed to children we reached in Ecuador.
